What They Said Wednesday–President Henry B. Eyring

 

Talk: President Henry B. Eyring, 1st Counselor of the First Presidency

  • Keys for priesthood learning
    • 1) Counsel together (this was the main idea, I missed the exact wording)
    • 2) Have love for each other that comes from great faith
      • I'm not sure which comes first, but both seem to be there when rapid learning takes place
      • Discord, fault-finding, and jealousy inhibits the ability of the Holy Ghost to teach us
      • Some are peacemakers, they have a gift of helping others find common ground
    • 3) Shared conviction about why the Lord loves us and trusts us to hold his priesthood, to labor for the salvation of man
      • See the great opportunity that God has given us to learn in his Priesthood school
      • Treasures of knowledge will be given us
      • Your family will become a place of learning.
