Rescue in Unity

We all go through up's and down's. We always progressing to be better more each day. We all could find some service and help one another. This post is based on a October General Conference 2014 talk called "Rescue in Unity by Elder Chi Hong Wong."
I love the Image with a important quote to remember. I will share with you some highlights that I loved during reading the talk. 

"In our day, it might happen like this. Four people were fulfilling an assignment from their bishop to visit, at his home, a man who was sick with palsy. I can visualize one of them coming from the Relief Society, one from the elders quorum, one from the Aaronic Priesthood, and, last but not least, one full-time missionary. In the most recent ward council, after counseling together about the needs in the ward, the bishop had given out “rescuing” assignments.

These four were assigned to help this man suffering with palsy. They could not wait for him to come to church by himself. They had to go to his home and visit him. They had to seek him out, and so they went. The man was being brought to Jesus.

In order to assist the Savior, we have to work together in unity and in harmony. Everyone, every position, and every calling is important. We have to be united in our Lord Jesus Christ.

This rescue assignment needed everyone working together. At the crucial moment, it would take careful coordination to lower the man with palsy from the roof. The four people would have to work in unity and in harmony. There could not be any discord among the four. They would have to lower the man with palsy at the same pace. If someone released the rope faster than the other three, the man would fall out of his bed. He could not hold on by himself due to his weakened condition."

In your own time, you can read the whole talk, Here's the link below, and I hope you will enjoy reading it. www.lds.org/general-conference/2014/10/rescue-in-unity

I encourage you to think about this question "What can I do today to help one another?" in your own time.

Stay Tuned until next time.
