Food for the Soul

Loved this talk and the requests from our Relief Society president last week

Talk: C. Max Caldwell, “Love of Christ,” Ensign, Nov 1992, 29, online link is:
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12: 1-13

(Try to read the talk before looking at the challenges) :)

Elder Calwell talked about there being three aspects to the love of Christ which are:

1. Love for Christ
2. Love from Christ
3. Love like Christ

There will be one challenge for each aspect. Pick one or more to focus on. They are:

1. Love for Christ: When you express love and gratitude to your Heavenly Father in your prayers, thank him for the challenges and difficult things going on in your life as well as the other blessings you have received.
2. Love from Christ: As you strive to repent and ask for the Lord's forgiveness, ask for help to forgive yourself of current and past wrongs as a way to more fully utilize the gift of the atonement.
3. Love like Christ: Think of a relationship you are struggling with right now. Pray for help to see that person as the Lord sees them then do one or more acts of kindness for that person that you wouldn't normally do.
