Temple university speed dating
It is a joy to be here at the Brigham Young University devotional.As you know, this is a very special place of learning.
I have pondered many subjects to teach during this devotional and have been impressed to talk about the importance of temple preparation and of having an eternal perspective during our mortal probation here on earth.When Moses reached the promised land, a tabernacle was used to bring these blessings to the children of Israel. [HC 4]Joseph Smith, as a result of a prayer, was visited by Jesus in the Kirtland Temple on a very special date, April 3, 1836, as recorded in section 110 of the Doctrine and Covenants.King David began preparations for building a temple, but because King David had been disobedient, he was told that he was not worthy and would not be permitted to build the temple. The Kirtland Temple was the first temple in these latter days, and it played an important role in the restoration of priesthood keys.When I was a boy my father brought me from Long Island, New York, to walk on the Salt Lake Temple grounds in Salt Lake City, to touch the temple, and to discuss the importance of the temple in my life.It was on that occasion that I made up my mind that someday I would return to enter the temple and receive the ordinances of the temple.
