Give a Child a Future

Five years ago, the readers of Meridian Magazine were incredibly generous. Over 1,500 of you contributed over $200,000 to help build a school for the leprosy-affected children in Bihar, one of the poorest states of India. Now, after a pandemic and more obstacles that one could possibly recount, our school is within months of opening. We now have the possibility of educating 700 of the most disadvantaged children in the world, and giving them a future that few of them even dare to dream for.

Come Follow Me Book of Mormon Podcast #21: “We Have Entered into a Covenant with Him,” Mosiah 18–24

I have often wondered what was on Abinadi’s mind as the fire that would engulf and kill him burned hotter and hotter. Did he wonder if he’d been a good missionary, because after all, there wasn’t a rush of converts from King Noah’s court.

The Price of Zeal

Religious people are often admonished to be zealous. In this past General Conference Elder Christofferson encouraged us to be “zealous in keeping the commandments of God.”  Revelation 3:19 says, “be zealous, therefore and repent.”  Clearly, being zealous can be a good thing. However, we learn from Zeniff that being overzealous can be tragic.  What is the difference between being zealous and being overzealous?
