Sacrifice Brings Forth Blessings of Heaven
About a month ago, we had a Stake Relief Society Temple Day. Sister Evans, one of the temple matrons, spoke to us. She shared a book I hadn’t heard of before: Wendy Watson Nelson’s Covenant Keepers. In this book, Sister Nelson gives a challenge:
“Would you be willing to try an experiment?
“What would happen if within the next six months, you selected a 21 day period of time and then did whatever it took to make a sacrifice of time to the Lord by increasing the time you spend in doing family history and temple work in those 21 days?
“What blessings, miracles, and other positive changes would come to your life?
“Sacrifice does indeed bring forth the blessings of heaven, because sacrifice is a law of heaven. And when we live according to any law of heaven, heaven responds. When we make a sacrifice to the Lord, a sacrifice that means something to Him, heaven is bound to respond” (Nelson, page 12–13).
This book will take you less than 30 minutes to read, and yet it could really motivate you to increase your efforts in temple attendance and family history. In December, if you e-mail me your name and address, I will send you this book! You need to read it yourself!
