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.”
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.
