I didn't see the irony....I thought the comments were as clear as mud :)
Of course that was just me being ironic, I think people are honestly conflicted. I remember a bishop saying in a RS meeting that there was no reason every woman shouldn't be a scriptorian. My initial reaction was one of pride. Luckily my heart seems to soften pretty quickly. I was 25 at the time with 2 small kids. I thought it impossible. I prayed for help, knowing my bishop knew better than me. The Lord helped me. 12 years later, I know the scriptures well. I think generally people are good. If I was asked to VT twice a month, that would be hard for me. I hope I would be humble enough to do it. I would want to be obedient but pride would get in my way at first. That's how it works with me. I never have trouble following the Prophet, it takes me longer to come around to counsel from the bishop...but I usually do. Thanks for the time you take with your blog. It helps me.
Thank you Linda.
Thanks for the chuckle this am.
Awesome. I hate it when people judge but worse than that I hate that I judge. Thanks for the reminder! Another goal for 2012!
Judgment and tolerance are a two-way street. If I'm wrong about something, I invite judgement. We should all be humble enough to accept some criticism. Isn't that was marriage is all about? MMM, this blog makes me think and reevaluate what I believe and why. It's sometimes a little painful to read a quote from an Apostle that is in opposition to a personal viewpoint, but no opinion or fad or preference or habit is more important than eternal life. If we stay with the Brethren, we can't go wrong.
Well said Vatermann! Well said!I think those monkeys are adorable! They remind me of some ladies in my ward... just kidding... i don't want to have to repent for casting judgement on monkeys/sisters in Zion. :)
...funny, I don't think of myself as judgmental. No vice is too big for me to over look - except for judging. I have contemplated that MANY TIMES, and have since STROVE to Not judge others for judging; FOR THAT IS JUDGING... This is something I constantly re-evaluate in myself; I pray to overcome it before I die! :oGreat post today! Thank you!Corine :D
You "made my week"... http://beinglds.blogspot.com/2012/01/you-made-my-week.html
What's interesting to note is that there IS such a thing as righteous judgement and just because we are human does not make us incapable of it.
