Prior to dedicating the temple, what was brought to the temple?
Who gave the dedication prayer?
How long did it take to complete the Lord's House and the King's House?
LESSON: It took a long time and a lot of effort to build the temple. This reminds us that anything worthwhile takes time and effort. Let us not be discouraged in well doing. Stay focused.
PRAYER: Father, help me to focus on those things that are worthwhile and add to life. Amen.
THE BIBLE AND THE TV GUIDE
On the table side by side:
The Bible and the TV Guide.
One's well worn and cherished with pride
(Not the Bible, but the TV Guide)
One is used daily to help folk decide;
No! It isn't the Bible; it's the TV Guide.
As pages are turned, what shall they see?
Oh, what does it matter? Turn on the TV.
Confusion reigns, they all can't agree
on what they shall watch on the old TV.
So they open the book in which they confide
(No! It's not the Bible; it's the TV Guide).
The Word of God is seldom read
Maybe a verse ere they fall into bed.
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be,
Not from reading the Bible, from watching TV!
So then back to the table, side by side,
Are the Holy Bible and the TV Guile.
no time for prayer, no time for the Word.
The plan of salvation is seldom heard.
Forgiveness of sin so full and free
Is found in the Bible, NOT on TV.
