Sometimes we just need to remember–remember to put what we desire to do in the front of our minds. Like sharing the gospel. At the end of the day, what really matters? That we were nice, honest, good to our children, friends and co-workers, and that we opened our mouth and shared our beliefs in the Savior’s goodness with someone. It matters that we served by sharing what we know and have with the world who desperately needs it.
You and I can do this. It take missionaries an average of over 10 visits to obtain one member referral. As Elder Bednar has reminded us, it’s our job to find them. The future of finding is on the Internet.
I think of the apostles of old, leaving their nets behind, to become disciples and fishers of men. Today, I believe the equivalent of the gospel net is the Internet. It is the tool for the gathering of the Lord’s people from all over the globe.
