Have you ever been in an earthquake? I was once. I don't even remember how old I was. Stomping around the house I thought it was me who started the shaking in the kitchen. Looking down the hallway I saw my mother running towards me, but everything was moving side-to-side. I thought I was shaking the house! She grabbed me and we sat under a red metal bunk bed until the earthquake was over.
My mother was prepared and ready to help me when I had no idea what was going on. I had never experienced an earthquake before, nor did I know what to do. She took that opportunity to teach me so I would be prepared for any future earthquakes.
The same should happen in our homes; preparing ourselves and our children for spiritual "earthquakes". We are not alone and we have someone with experience to turn to. We must remember to utilize the Lord!
"Brother's and sisters, none of us would knowingly construct our homes, places of work, or sacred houses of worship on sand or rubble without appropriate plans and materials. Let us accept the Savior’s invitation to come unto Him. Let us build our lives upon a safe and a sure foundation." -Dean M. Davies
Happy Monday, Nesties!
