We sometimes want personal messages from the Lord, but then we shirk when those personal messages are not unique. We want to know what the Lord would have us do, but then we become frustrated when what He asks of us is the same thing He asks of our neighbors.
But the truth is there is a difference between personal and unique. Most of us will have personal missions to accomplish for the Lord throughout our lives. Rarely will we have unique missions to accomplish. Though Sections 15 and 16 were nearly identical, it does not change the fact that they were personal and important to their recipients. Likewise we need to be careful that we don’t overlook the personal messages the Lord has for us as we look beyond the mark searching for unique messages for us.
