Teachings of Lorenzo Snow Lesson 15: "Faithful, Energetic Service in the Kingdom of God"
Serving in our callings and lifting where we stand can sometimes seem intimidating, and we sometimes feel unappreciated in our efforts. But the Lord always has need of our helping hands.
Note: As the Church has said, the manual has been prepared as the primary source of lesson material. These supplements, from general conference addresses, are meant only as a complement to your study on this lesson’s topic.
Supplement is from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk, "Four Titles" from the April 2013 general conference priesthood session:
Serving God and our fellowmen will challenge us and transform us into something greater than we ever thought possible.
Perhaps you might think that you are not needed, that you are overlooked or unwanted, that you are nobody.
I am sincerely sorry if any priesthood holder feels this way. Certainly you are not overlooked or unwanted by your Heavenly Father. He loves you. And I tell you with certainty that you are needed by your Church.
Do you not know that “God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to [put to shame] the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to [put to shame] the things which are mighty”?
Perhaps it is true that we are weak. Perhaps we are not wise or mighty. But when God works through us, no one and nothing can stand against us.
