Matagofie Samoa. Seki a Samoa

This week Elder Pearson of the seventy came and spoke in our Stake Conference.

He gave a great talk about agency. He talked about 2nd Nephi chapter 2 where we learn that God created two types of things, things to act and things to be acted upon.

Its up to us to decide if we want to be an object who is acted upon, or an agent to act for ourselves. Do we want to want to be a Child of God who uses their agency? Or do we want to be a tree? A tree doesn't make its own decisions. If it rains, it will get wet. If its hot, it will get hot. If someone tries to offend the tree, it will get offended. If someone tries to make a tree mad, it will get mad. A person who is like a tree reacts to the actions of others.

An agent who uses their agency, or free will, will chose if they want to get wet, hot, offended, or mad. They make their own decisions. This is how our Heavenly Father wants us to be.

Sorry I don't have much time to write any more. Just always remember not to be a tree.

Alofa atu ia te outou!
-Elder Lamoreaux
