The scriptures are full of examples of the Children of God making offerrings to the Lord as a symbol of their commitment to Him (including at temple dedications. See Ezra 6:16-17). Many Saints have offerred up their time, their talents, their money and their possessions to build temples in this last dispensation. For some, their offering has been to get themselver TO the temple...whether through spiritual preparation or very real sacrifices of time and money to travel to a temple this is still too far away.
It is a privilege to be living in a time and place where temples are so easily seen and so readily available. And though your time and talents and money might not be needed to build these particular temples, there is still an opportunity to COME UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD with YOUR unique offering.
Ask yourself: WHAT WILL I GIVE?
In addition to giving of your time and your talents in preparing for the Celebration Event, we invite all youth and their families, along with all adults involved in the Celebration, to participate in the WHAT WILL I GIVE? project!
You can choose to give anything that will show Him your commitment to "come up to the mountain"...perhaps a little bit better than you are today.
* Give more time in prayer or scripture study
* Give UP a habit that is keeping you from having the spirit with you
* Fast more frequently
* Participate in the temple more often
* Choose to spend more time in the Duty to God or Personal Progress programs
Whatever your offering, join the project!
Get your family & friend to join in too!
And share your offering here...
"Come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him..." (Omni 1:26)
SO...beginning now...until the Celebration Event...what will YOU give?
