The goal of this lesson is “to help class members learn to apply in their own lives the instructions the Lord has revealed to other individuals in the scriptures.” Sometimes when we read about the Lord’s words to one person we forget that the truths given in the verses are eternal and apply to everyone, not just the person He is talking to. Eternal truths never apply to just one person. They always apply equally to all of God’s children.
5 And the office of thy calling shall be for a comfort unto my servant, Joseph Smith, Jun., thy husband, in his afflictions, with consoling words, in the spirit of meekness.
14 Continue in the spirit of meekness, and beware of pride. Let thy soul delight in thy husband, and the glory which shall come upon him.
