- When Joseph Smith got to Kirtland to join the Saints who were gathering, he found many of them confused because they all came from different churches that had different rules (or laws).
- Joseph asked the Lord, and the Lord gave these sections to correct and clarify which laws he wanted his Saints to be following.
- What do these verses tell us about preparing to hear and follow God’s laws? How can that help me today?
What are some laws of God that He asks me to follow now?
Play Red Light, Green Light as a way to practice obeying right away.
- This section was published in Kirtland’s newspaper in two parts, and it was called “The Law.” It is a very long section, so we are going to read one verse per principle the Lord taught.
How can I improve on obeying one of the principles we talked about today?
Make blessings bags to help the poor
- When we are sick, we can receive Priesthood blessings. Those blessings depend upon our faith.
- Just because we get a blessings, doesn’t mean that we will be healed immediately. Sometimes the Lord has other things for us to learn.
- What should we do for those who are ill?
How can increase my faith in Jesus Christ?
- Today’s law is called the Law of Consecration. “Consecrate” means to set aside for a sacred reason.
- The Saints were asked to give all of their property to the Bishop. He would then give them back only what they needed, and all the extra was divided up among the needy members.
- How do you think the Saints felt about this law? Would it be easy or hard to follow? Why?
- We do it differently now, but we still live the Law of Consecration – we pay tithing and fast offerings.
How can I live the Law of Consecration now?

Follow the Prophet (Children’s #110) last verse
- These verses talk about revelation from Heavenly Father. The prophet is the only person who can receive revelation for the entire church.
- But we can receive personal revelation from Heavenly Father to know what we should do to apply the prophet’s words.
- This is called stewardship – you can’t receive revelation for someone that the Lord hasn’t put you in charge of. A bishop of another ward can’t give callings in a different ward, for example.
How can I know when I am receiving personal revelation?
