Some Important Principles, Doctrines, and Events
Suggestions for Teaching
Moses 6:26–36. A Call to Serve the Lord
Read Moses 6:26–36. Ask: What was Enoch called to do? Why did he feel reluctant? Have students read verses 32–36 and list what helped Enoch accomplish what the Lord commanded (see also 1 Nephi 3:7). Invite students to share examples of how they have felt about calls to serve, and how the Lord has helped them succeed in their callings.
Moses 6:26–36. Heart, Ears, and Eyes
Have students study Moses 6:26–36and compare Enoch’s heart, ears, and eyes to the hearts, ears, and eyes of the people. Ask: What was Enoch blessed to feel, hear, and see that the people could not? Why? Ask students to suggest truths illustrated by Enoch’s washing of his eyes (see vv. 35–36). Invite students to find and share scriptures that teach how we can open our heart, ears, and eyes to the Lord.
Moses 6:37–39. “A Wild Man Hath Come”
Moses 6:43–47. Counsel from the Lord
Have students find the question that Enoch asked the people in Moses 6:43, and then have them restate the question in their own words. Compare the people of Enoch’s day in Moses 6:27–28, 43to the principles Jacob taught in Jacob 4:8, 10, 14. Ask students why they think some people prefer their own counsel to the counsel of the Lord. Discuss what we can do to better seek and follow the Lord’s counsel.
