Listen with Your Spiritual Ears

In Sacrament Meeting Kevin said, “Listen with your spiritual ears.” That made me want to somehow draw a gospel lesson out of something that happened to me last week. So here we go.

At work, Archana brought her computer to be fixed. It was having some serious trouble. She told me that she had four other people look at it, and all of them told her it was beyond repair. They suggested she should completely wipe it and start over.

I took a look and told Archana it could be fixed.

It wasnʼt easy. She spent over five hours at the Help Desk, but all (or most, depending on your point of view) of her problems were repaired.

Here comes the lesson: When our lives get screwed up, there are plenty of people that will tell us to give up. We shouldnʼt listen to them. What we should do is go where we know we can get help: Jesus Christ.

Getting our problems fixed (repenting) isnʼt easy. It takes a long time and requires great sacrifice on our part. Thatʼs the only way to get our lives back in order, though.

And when weʼre all forgiven, we can give our Eldest Brother a big hug and get back to work.
