Every stake in Arizona had the opportunity to hear President Monson speak in Stake Conference this past Sunday.
What strikes me about the idea of "rescue" is that it is the very heart and soul of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is a divinely-ordered way in which we are to help Heavenly Father gather and bring back His children, and as women, our part is so vital. We have the divine responsibility to teach our children everything they need to know and do to return and live with our Father in Heaven. This can be an incredibly overwhelming task, but we are never left alone. Our Father values each soul so much that He has given us sources of truth and counsel to guide us in our daily walk - scriptures, prophets, priesthood leaders, personal revelation. He would never entrust us to raise one of His precious children without access to knowledge and wisdom pertaining to each individual need.
I love to think about that. Every one of us is so loved by our Father in Heaven that He provided first a Savior for us to pave the way to eternal life, and with this He gave us the tools to access everything else we would need.
I am grateful for the rescuers - first, for our Savior, Jesus Christ, and for those who properly understand the great plan our Father in Heaven has for His children. I am so thankful for all of the resources our Father has given us to show us His love and help us love His children. I look at my little rambunctious 3-year-old son and hope that he has "rescuers" in his life who will see him as Heavenly Father sees him and look beyond the trouble concentrating or the seventeenth time he leaped up out of his chair in excitement. After all - each lost soul is someone's son, someone's brother, or in my case, someone's sister.
May we all be rescuers!
Thank you Brittny!
