Duty to God
Currently we have three deacons in our family.
Today one of them woke up with a fever and achy body.
After telling his Dad that he wasn’t feeling well enough to go to Church, my husband asked, “Well, what about your priesthood duties?”
To which our son shrugged his shoulders and responded, “I guess I can’t do them.”
“Well,” I mused, “that means you’ll have to call the deacon’s quorum president to let him know you will not be there today to fulfill your assignments.”
“Really?” he winced.
So our son got up, went into the other room, dialed from my cell phone and called our home phone, asking for his older brother - who is currently serving as deacon’s quorum president - and let him know that he would not be at Church today to fulfill his priesthood assignments.
How. Stinking. Cute. Is. That.
