Doctrine and Covenants 51

(October 16, 2015)
                I have never noticed before the clear language regarding stewardship in this section.  Of course, I have always recognized its importance as a principle, but never to the extent that I needed to – clearly, if “whoso is found a faithful, a just, and a wise steward shall enter into the joy of his Lord, and shall inherit eternal life” then stewardship is of the highest importance.

                Mind you, of course, there is more than just the fact that he needed to be a steward over the immediate calling – I think the Lord is instead referring to stewardship over all that we have been entrusted with.  But it really makes things so very easy for us.  We don’t have to accomplish some great task to receive Exaltation – we need only accomplish the task the Lord has placed six inches in front of our nose, and then keep doing that until we are done with this mortal life.
