Invite Diligent Learning

“Invite Diligent Learning,” Teaching, No Greater Call: A Resource Guide for Gospel Teaching (1999), 60–74


Each of us is responsible to learn the gospel through diligent effort. We are also privileged at various times to serve as teachers—to inspire and help others in their responsibility to learn the gospel.

We render this important service by doing all we can to:

  1. Awaken and hold the interest of those we teach.

  2. Encourage their active participation in lessons.

  3. Show them how to live according to the truths they learn.

We are to do these things with love and by the power of the Spirit. This means that we should focus not so much on our performance as on how well we help others learn the gospel diligently and live it faithfully.
