Going the Second Mile
Elder Hugo Montoya spoke during the afternoon session of General Conference today about bearing one anothers’ burdens. One way to do that is to go the second mile.
“The Savior said, ‘Whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.’ As an example, we are asked to attend the temple regularly, as our individual circumstances allow. Attending the temple requires a sacrifice of time and resources especially for those who have to travel a great distance.
“Nevertheless, this sacrifice could be considered part of the first mile. We will be walking the second mile when we understand the words “find, take, and teach,” when we search for and prepare the names of our ancestors for temple ordinances, when we help in indexing, when we serve as temple workers, and when we look for ways to help others have meaningful temple experiences.”
