our relief society lesson today was about keeping the commandments. it was a great lesson and i must admit i did get a few laughs out of it. one was when someone pointed out that god only gave us 10 rules, surely that isn't too hard. another sister then pointed out the fact that they are the ten commandments, not the ten suggestions which a lot of people in todays world seem to believe. all i could think about was this comic i saw on pinterest a few months ago
what an accurate depiction. i have heard so many people in recent years talking about how the commandments are outdated, obsolete and no longer relevant. none of the above statements are true. our loving father in heaven provided us with these guides to ensure our safety... and by adhering to them we are promised something far greater than we could ever imagine.
keep the commandments keep the commandments
in this there is safety, in this there is peace
he will send blessings, he will send blessings
words of a prophet, keep the commandments
in this there is safety and peace
