Come Follow Me


Called and Chosen

Reinforces this week’s “Come Follow Me” study: Doctrine & Covenants 51-57
“A Faithful, a Just, and a Wise Steward”


Doctrine and Covenants 51:19

“And whoso is found a faithful, a just, and a wise steward shall enter into the joy of the Lord, and shall inherit eternal life.”


Give Said the Little Stream, Children’s Songbook page 236


The Saints are called by the Lord to journey to the land of Missouri and settle there to build up Zion. The Lord gives callings and instructions to many of the Elders and members of the Church. Several Elders are called to take different paths to Missouri and preach along the way. Some are given specific assignments to help build up the new community once they reach Missouri. The Lord promises that those who are faithful will be blessed. The Lord reminds the people to take care of the poor and the needy. The Lord also warns those who are rebellious, selfish, and greedy. He says “blessed are the poor and pure in heart, whose hearts are broken, and whose spirits are contrite, for they shall see the kingdom of God coming in power and great glory unto their deliverance.”

We are also called to serve and build up the Kingdom of God and share our resources, time, and talents. We can choose to be faithful, just, and wise and do our best to fulfill our callings and take care of others. The Lord knows how to help us grow, and he knows who needs our help. If we fulfill our callings with humble hearts, the Lord promises he will magnify our efforts and bless us.


We live in perilous times when many believe we are not accountable to God and that we do not have personal responsibility or stewardship for ourselves or others. Many in the world are focused on self-gratification, put themselves first, and love pleasure more than they love righteousness. They do not believe they are their brother’s keeper. In the Church, however, we believe that these stewardships are a sacred trust.” Quentin L. Cook
