#LightTheWorld Day 3


Scouts are such a talented group. On your Sabbath day, it is wonderful to reach out. Do you play an instrument that you could share your talent with a shut-in?  How about playing the piano at a nursing home?  Nursing home patients can be read to, or you could bring some postcards and write a note for them…don’t forget stamps.

    Today in our High Priest group we considered this statement:
    “The Sabbath is a day to serve others.

    What can we learn about serving others on the Sabbath from the ways the Savior served and blessed those around Him? Encourage members to review and discuss Matthew 9:10–13; Luke 19:1–9; John 11:32–46; 13:1–5, 12–17; and 3 Nephi 17:5–10. Ask members to think about these scriptures as they consider how they can serve on the Sabbath. For example, they could serve family members, reach out to individuals and families they minister to as home and visiting teachers, work on family history, visit the sick, or share the gospel. Perhaps members could have a family council to plan ways they can serve others on the Sabbath.”
