The Priesthood - a Sacred Gift

The Priesthood - a Sacred Gift
by President Thomas S. Monson

I chose to study the words of the prophet this week.  His Priesthood Session talk, this one, was about 

drum-roll please

The Priesthood

Speaking to the priesthood brethren he said, 
"Come, all ye sons of God who have received the priesthood, let us consider our callings; let us reflect on our responsibilities; let us determine our duty; and let us follow Jesus Christ, our Lord."

"Let is take most seriously the callings, the responsibilities, and the duties which come with the priesthood we hold."

Today, my second son will be ordained a Priest in the Aaronic Priesthood.  The stories and counsel President Monson shares in this talk will be a great FHE discussion as we teach, remind, learn, and discuss his new priesthood duties.  

I especially love the following quote:
"I cannot think of a more worthy goal for a young man to have than to be described as were the valiant and righteous sons of Mosiah."

I also love President Eyring's October 2009 talk Be Ready, and this follow-up story HERE.
