Time Is Sacred

“According To The Flesh”

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

2 Nephi 2:8

“who layeth down his life according to the flesh.”

Jesus Christ did not take the easy path and we shouldn’t either. How can we teach our children not to take the easy path? Teach our children the sacredness of T.I.M.E!

Teach them the Plan of Salvation and the purpose of this life. Teach them that mortal life passes in a blink of an eye compared to eternity and how every moment makes up eternity.

Time is sacred! What we do with our discretionary time matters. Elder Richard G. Scott said;

“Part of that testing here is to have so many seemingly interesting things to do that we can forget the main purpose for being here. Satan works very hard so that the essential things won’t happen….Study the things you do in your discretionary time, that time you are free to control. Do you find that it is centered in those things that are of highest priority and of greatest importance? Or do you unconsciously, consistently fill it with trivia and activities that are not of enduring value nor help you accomplish the purpose for which you came to earth? Think of the long view of life, not just what’s going to happen today or tomorrow. Don’t give up what you most want in life for something you think you want now.”

“The essential things must be accomplished during your testing period on earth. They must have first priority. They must not be sacrificed for lesser things, even though they are good and worthwhile accomplishments. After this life, you will be restored to that which you have allowed yourself to become.” April 1997 General Conference
