Sunday Thoughts

"you can gain knowledge from reading a book but you gain wisdom from prayer"

The lesson was based on this talk by Elder Hales.

the highlights from this talk for me are ......

"Becoming Provident Providers Temporally and Spiritually"

*"Our success is never measured by how strongly we are tempted but by how faithfully we respond."
We MUST practice these principles of provident living.....
~joyfully live within our means
~be content with what we have
~avoid excessive debt
~diligently saving and preparing for rainy days

Being Provident Providers
~ "Thou shall not covet"
~ four most caring words "We can't afford it"
~Are you buying this for me or for you?

Law of Tithe
~ principle of faith
Fast Offerings

important to establish a family budget, review the budget and spending with family.

De clutter our lives, of temporal junk, and emotional junk.
