What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Sunday School: King David; Faith, Love, Envy, Sin, Repentance, reclamat


Kind David is an enigma.  The above video attests to his faith as a youth.  As a youth he was anointed to be king.   However, Israel already had a king in Saul, who had lost his right to the throne continually because of his own disobedience.  It is interesting to note the differences this had on the two men most effected.  The current king, Saul, becomes bitter and angry and jealous.  These attitudes effect him until he is killed.  He spends most of his time worrying about David, or trying to kill him.  On the other hand Jonathan, who was the person from whom the inheritance of the kingdom was taken, loved David.  His attitude was completely opposite what you would think it should have been.

Then David has another side, the side that gives in to temptation.  He has been serving as king for some time, but falls.


Fortunately, we have repentance should we fall.

Lastly a video about Idaho Falls and a park I have never visited, but illustrates the definition of being reclaimed.
Elder Shayne M. Bowen teaches: “The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you.”
