LDS Family Week in Review: July 8-14

This week in the LDS Family blog, we discussed a variety of topics, including agency, priorities, and service. Join us for a review!

Gospel Doctrine Lessons: In “I Know Him Not,” we talked about Peter’s denial of the Savior, and how we, too, may be denying Him in our lives. In Release Barabbas, we discussed how many of the Jews chose worldliness over the Savior’s way. In “Thou That Destroyest The Temple…”, we considered the ironic words of those who scorned Christ before He died. And in Deathbed Repentance, we talked about the thieves hanging on the cross with the Savior.

RS/EQ Lessons: In “Setting (Your) Plans Aside,” we talked about how President Kimball kept the gospel first, even at the cost of his plans for employment. In The Trial of Prosperity, we discussed the cycle of obedience and prosperity, and how it often led to problems for people in the scriptures. In Monkey Traps in Our Lives, we discussed how Satan seeks to entice us and, ultimately, to trap us. And in A Continuing Prosperity, we considered the idea that money and possessions are neither good nor bad; it is our attitude towards them that makes the difference.
