Day of rest. I sure needed it. Went to church. Taught a lesson in Sunday school on prayer. Last week was a good preparation for it. Then we had a lesson in the Elder's Quorum on fasting, and then the Sacrament meeting with talks on obedience.
Elder Packer talks about the concept of "faith obedience" as opposed to "blind obedience". Here is an illustration that helps me appreciate the idea. Suppose I am playing in a chess tournament that has a unique rule that allows me to ask advice from somebody like Gary Kasparov or maybe a very strong chess engine for just one move. Suppose I ask for such advice, I am told to sacrifice my queen, and I do not see the follow up quite yet. Do I have enough faith to go ahead with the move?
Unlike that situation, in spiritual matters when we have enough faith to make the first move, we qualify for advice with the second. And if there is enough faith to make the second, we will receive advice with the third as well, and so on.
