Main points to ponder
As you consider this week’s topic, “I Will Give You Rest,” consider this article from the August 2022 New Era:
To face life’s unfairness, we need perspective and faith.
Perspective comes from understanding Heavenly Father’s plan. We are eternal beings who have been allowed to come to earth so that we can become more like Heavenly Father. While we’re here, we face temptation, sorrow, pain, and suffering. Some suffering comes because God allows people their agency, and some choices can bring suffering to themselves or others. Other times we may not know exactly why people suffer. But we know that in Heavenly Father’s plan, these things can give us experience and be for our good in the end (see Doctrine and Covenants 122:7).
Jesus Christ has overcome all things through His Atonement and Resurrection. As we see unfairness in this life, we can exercise faith in Him and in our Heavenly Father’s plan. We can trust that the Savior will make everything right in the end. And through the Holy Ghost, we can receive comfort and strength in our trials.
If we choose to have faith and endure to the end, we are promised “peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come” (Doctrine and Covenants 59:23).
We all carry burdens—some resulting from our own sins and mistakes, some caused by the choices of others, and some that are nobody’s fault but are simply part of life on earth. Regardless of the reasons for our struggles, Jesus pleads with us to come unto Him so He can help us bear our burdens and find relief (see also Mosiah 24).

The Sabbath Day. Read Matthew 12:1–13,

- “The Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day” (verse 8).
- “It is lawful to do well on the sabbath days” (verse 12).
Faithful Resources, and Faithful Resources. Also, Faithful Resources therefore Faithful Resources. But without Faithful Resources you’ll need Faithful Resources; because Faithful Resources help.
