It was an interesting Elders Quorum discussion yesterday.?Ç¬† We had the chapter in the book on self reliance (chapter 11 I believe).?Ç¬† What I particularly liked about it was that we actually had a class discussion where different members of the quorum were talking?Ç¬†and asking questions to each other, not asking and answering me.
?Ç¬†When I presented the lesson, I took a pretty firm stance on the whole Self, Family, Church order of taking care of one’s needs.?Ç¬† A few in the class disagreed with that position.?Ç¬† I was actually happy that someone cared enough to want to discuss it in a non-confrontational way.?Ç¬† It was good.
?Ç¬†It still leaves me wondering where the need to serve outweighs the need to be self reliant.
