Your mouth hasn’t been shut, so preach the Gospel.

Your mouth hasn’t been shut, so preach the Gospel.
.
Do you have a “Mormon” son in your home? A boy who is 10 and preparing to receive the Aaronic Priesthood in the year they turn 12?
.
When I heard that announcement nearly two years ago, my thoughts went to Mormon. He was considered a trustworthy boy. Ammaron came to him and laid out his course for the next 14 years.
.
When he was 15 years old, the Lord took away His disciples, work of miracles, and healing. There were also no more gifts from the Lord. The Holy Ghost ceased to come to anyone. (Mormon Chapter 1).
.
Can you imagine being Mormon? He was a 15-year-old kid who was given a massive assignment at the age of 10. Imagine having the task of going to a specific location in 14 years, obtaining a record for future generations (plates of Nephi), and scribing everything you have learned concerning the people.
.
Then imagine this, you turn 15, and all the miracles, healing, gifts, and Lord’s disciples are gone. Then you’re visited by the Lord, and He gives you a taste of His goodness.
.
What’s your first reaction after that visit? Probably the same as Mormon’s—Endeavor to preach the gospel to the people.
.
However, you’re unable to, and your mouth has been shut—being forbidden to preach to your people.
.
Take some time and think about that for a few minutes.
.
The Lord trusts our Youth. He has always put His confidence in the youth. We need to do the same. We need to look at our young children, like Ammaron looked at Mormon—Sober child, quick to observe, trustworthy.
.
If we can’t do that, we need to pray to have our minds opened to understanding from the Lord. He looks at them like that, and He has trusted them to hold the Aaronic Priesthood at that age.
.
Now, your mouth hasn’t been shut, so preach the Gospel!
.
We have full advantage of doing what Mormon could not. Our mouths are not forbidden. We have miracles; we have the priesthood; we have gifts of the Lord; we have disciples; we have a Prophet of God to guide us!!
.
Take advantage of this time in history! We are a blessed people.
.
Hear Him and preach His gospel!
