Now, as an alternative of a common Miracle Monday, we’re bringing you a scripture study sent to us by Sister Lori Kimmel. We hope you get pleasure from it, no matter whether you apply the scriptures personally or you use this as the basis for a church class or group discussion.
The subject, “Preparing for the Storm,” will look quite sensible to you if you reside in an location that is periodically threatened by any sort of all-natural disaster.
This study requires a genuine-life situation and provides it a spiritual application. The remainder of the report is in Sister Lori’s words.
Getting a native Floridian, hurricane season is a way of life. Every single May possibly (or June), we start off gathering our supplies. A single year in Ladies’ Circle, we studied briefly about “Preparing for the Storm.” I believed that perhaps these who study the weblog would like to study along as well. I think we all will need aid with our individual storms — are we prepared?
1. Meals and Water
“And it came to pass that he brake bread once again and blessed it, and gave to the disciples to consume. And when they had eaten he commanded them that they ought to break bread, and give unto the multitude. And when they had offered unto the multitude he also gave them wine to drink, and commanded them that they ought to give unto the multitude. Now, there had been no bread, neither wine, brought by the disciples, neither by the multitude But he actually gave unto them bread to consume, and also wine to drink.
And he stated unto them: He that eateth this bread eateth of my physique to his soul and he that drinketh of this wine drinketh of my blood to his soul and his soul shall never ever hunger nor thirst, but shall be filled.” (three Nephi 20:three-eight)
