A famous seventeenth-century British poet and clergyman, John Donne, wrote a poem in which he said, “No man is an island”
"To make a friend, you must be a friend."
For all have not every gift given unto them; for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God. To some is given one, and to some is given another, that all may be profited thereby. D&C 46:11-12
Personal Progress Ideas:
Good Works Value Experience 3: Read Mosiah 18:7–10, and in your journal list three ways you can comfort others or help them bear their burdens. Do the things on your list, and tell a family member or leader about the experience and how your attitude and understanding have changed.
Divine Nature Value Experience 7: Learn the definition of the word peacemaker. Then find and read five scriptures that teach about peacemakers. Become an example of a peacemaker in your home and at school as you refrain from criticizing, complaining, or speaking unkindly to or about others. Pray each morning and evening to Heavenly Father for help to do this. After two weeks write in your journal what new habits you want to develop, how being a peacemaker is part of your divine nature, and how you will continue to be a peacemaker.
Integrity Value Project Bullet 3: Using 1 Timothy 4:12 as your guide, organize and carry out an activity that will help you practice being “an example of the believers.”
