Using the March 2003 Liahona


Discussion Ideas

  • “Reasons to Stay Pure,” p. 6: Elder Neal A. Maxwell explains that Church members share some of the world’s concerns about breaking the law of chastity. But he also teaches that our “reasons for keeping the seventh commandment go far beyond these … concerns.” What are some of these higher reasons?

  • “Everything Good and Beautiful,” p. 14: Talk about modesty by finding pictures of temples and of worldly buildings and discussing the relationship between appearance and purpose. Then draw a parallel between architecture and clothing styles.

  • “Looking beyond the Mark,” p. 20: Discuss one of the ways we might look beyond the mark. Ask for specific examples of how this particular issue can be a stumbling block.

  • “Grandma Emily’s Chicken,” p. F6: Tell the story of Grandma Emily’s hen, and ask for examples to further illustrate the idea that we can bless others through our sacrifices—even when it is inconvenient.
