This is a very temporal set of commandments, in a sense, but as we know there is no such thing as a truly temporal commandment. We are given instructions here on so many things related to how we operate our lives that in some ways this is one of the most useful Sections that we have. We are to develop expertise to be useful to the Lord, and to use our expertise to build the Kingdom. We are to return what we borrow, return what was lost, love each other, humble ourselves, and seek the Lord. The centerpiece to this list, to me, is that we are to be wise stewards. If we recognize ourselves as stewards, and all things are in the Lord’s hands, the remainder of things tend to take care of themselves.
