“This is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39).
Understanding the plan of salvation is fundamental to spiritual learning. Everything a young man learns about the gospel—and what he learns about temporal things—should be placed in the context of the plan of salvation so that he can discern between that which is eternally significant and that which is not. When a young man truly understands the plan of salvation, he lives with greater purpose. He sees his trials and adversity as opportunities to grow. He makes choices based on their eternal consequences rather than seeking immediate gratification. He is able to find happiness and joy.
To make Duty to God part of the Sunday quorum meeting, you may consider teaching the Duty to God outline below during this unit.
Outlines to choose from this month:
- What is my role in fulfilling Heavenly Father’s plan? (Duty to God)
- What is the plan of salvation?
- What happened in the premortal life?
- What is the purpose of life?
- Why do the choices I make matter?
- Why do we have adversity?
- How can I find comfort when someone I care about dies?
- Why should I treat my body like a temple?
Consider how you can plan activities that connect with what the youth are learning. A youth activities site is available to assist you. Many of the learning activities in these outlines could also serve as effective Mutual activities. Work with quorum presidencies to select and plan appropriate activities that reinforce what the young men learn on Sunday.
