That burden which ye bear
Forget it- let it alone
Forgive, repent with care
Let the Lord carry and atone

If you are carrying some burden, forget it, let it alone. Do a lot of forgiving and a little repenting, and you will be visited by the Spirit of the Holy Ghost and confirmed by the testimony that you did not know existed. You will be watched over and blessed—you and yours. This is an invitation to come unto Him. This church—The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth,” 22 by His own declaration—is where we find “the great plan of happiness.” 23 Of this I bear witness in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

And I’m already there
Learning something new
Preparing, then, to share

Applying the What Manner of Men and Women Ought Ye to Be? by Elder Lynn G. Robbins to teaching…
I had an ahah. In summer school, I have two kinds of students I struggle with: those who don’t listen and those who don’t listen. One is really smart and does their work- but the “be” is missing in behavior. The other is distracted and has not come to learn- the “do”. One is a hypocrit and has not come to school to learn but to cause trouble and distract and get attention for it. What do you think?

>It is time to be
What’s been asked of you
To really see
And desire to do

>With Christ’s name and nature
I can do and be
To spiritually mature
To hear and truly see

To do without being
Makes one a hypocrit
To be without doing
Is lonely, without profit

Ought Ye to Be?
