Do activity A as you study 2 Kings 6–7.
Use the Scriptures to Solve Problems
Consider the following situations and write about how something from 2 Kings 6 could help in each situation:
You are on a mission and there is much opposition to your work. Almost no members live in the area and it seems that nearly everyone you talk to is against the Church.
A person at your school or in your neighborhood doesn’t like you and is often unkind to you. In a rare opportunity, you have the chance to get back at that person.
You want to keep the standards of the Church but doing so is difficult because you are one of only a few Church members in your area.
