Passage #1

And said unto me: Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

Serve God.

Were you intentional in your service to God this week?

Passage #2

. . . and my work with my God.

1 Nephi 21:4

Precept #2

Do your work with God.

Is God actively involved in your day to day work? Do you ask Him to be? Do you want Him to be?

Passage #3

. . . that I should be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him . . .

1 Nephi 21:5

Precept #3

Search for those people who are ready to embrace the Gospel and give them the opportunity to do so.

Who is the Lord telling you to share the Gospel with?

Passage #4

. . . to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nations abhorreth, to servant of rulers . . .

1 Nephi 21:7

Precept #4

Don’t assume that someone should be dismissed, ignored, and rejected just because the rest of the world feels that way about them.

Have you ever stopped to consider the value and worth of the ideas of someone who has received a lot of dramatic opposition? How has that enlarged your soul and give you better understanding? Has it brought you closer to God? Could it?

Passage #5

For can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee, O house of Israel.

1 Nephi 21:15

Precept #5

Don’t forget to minister to those people the Lord has given you stewardship over.

Who is there within your scope of influence who needs your love?
