Here’s the elephant you were hoping for. Or maybe you weren’t, lol.
I have this verse of scripture jumbling through my head after my reading today:
Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”
Ah, the things we realize in hindsight.
My thought when I started to re-listen to this General Conference talk today was, oh, this is that one about home teaching. Mentally I just checked it off in my mind as a bit of mental static. HA! Never underestimate the power of the Spirit plus Elder Holland to communicate to your heart exactly what you need to hear. (Note for clarity: Home Teaching is a program in our church where a companionship of men is assigned to visit certain families in the congregation to check on their well-being and offer help where needed. Visiting Teaching is a similar program in which the women are assigned in companionships to visit other women in the congregation for the purpose of building friendship and love, and offering help when needed.)
“We are asking you as home teachers to be God’s emissaries to His children, to love and care and pray for the people you are assigned, as we love and care and pray for you. May you be vigilant in tending the flock of God in ways consistent with your circumstances”
