Gospel Message Day 298

Sacrament, Part 3

I love that the sacrament takes some time. As the bread and then the water are passed to every single member congregated together, we have the time to think, reflect, reaffirm, and re-commit. Over the years I have used the time to re-read the sacrament hymn, to better understand the words, message, and testimony. I think back over my week to analyze how I have acted. If I remember actions that were not Christlike, I take this time to repent and to re-commit to doing and being better. This is also one of the few benefits of being single with no kids--I have no distractions during the sacrament. The time is all mine to really delve in to my reflection and repentance. It is a great blessing for me.
