Day of rest. Two more sessions of the General Conference. The single young men of age to marry kept hearing about their problem. This time from Elder Scott. There was also a lot of discussion of the Church welfare plan. If only our government adopted it, we would never see poverty. It is based on the principle of self reliance. No man ever gets fish without taking fishing lessons first if he capable of taking them. As I heard those talks I wondered about the poor people that live righteously, keep the commandments, pay their tithing, live within their means, and are still struggling to provide for their needs. There are some of those, relatively not too many, but they do exist. For one reason or another have not been given the talent of financial prosperity. How will the promise of having enough for their needs is fulfilled for them?
I often think of the scripture in Doctrine and Covenants 117 about Oliver Granger, of whom the Lord said: "and when he falls he shall rise again for his sacrifice shall be more sacred unto me than his increase". It is a test our faith when we see Oliver Grangers around us - the Lord wants to see if we have enough of it to take care of them. That is how this promise is fulfilled.
