“After Much Tribulation … Cometh the Blessing”

Individual and Family

What is the purpose of the instructions in these verses?

Zion can be built only on principles of righteousness.

Blessings come after afflictions and trials of faith.

I am a “steward over earthly blessings.”


I can be “a light unto the world.”

The Lord will bless me if I keep His commandments.

I can be a peacemaker.

The Lord wants me to share what I have with those in need.

I can obey the Lord’s commandments even when I don’t understand the reasons for them.

Sunday School

Our trials teach us valuable lessons and give us experience.

Each of us is “a steward over earthly blessings.”
