The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Today's Good Word reminds us how important it is to see clearly. And you know we're not talking glasses and contact lenses. We need our inner eye to be operating as close to 20/20 as possible.
What does that mean?
As children, I relied on my parents for everything. Without a second thought on my part, there was food on the table and clothes in the closet. I never wondered how I was getting to school or who would tuck me in at night. Mom and Dad took care of it all. They knew what was best for me.
As I got older, I started doing more on my own. I didn’t ask for help with math homework. I got a job and paid for my own lunch. Relying on my parents seemed less necessary. I knew they’d always be there, but independence was looming larger. I didn’t ask for their advice as much as I used to, and I became more comfortable making my own decisions.
