Solutions will come as we open our hearts to those whose lives are different than our own, as we work to build bonds of genuine friendship, and as we see each other as the brothers and sisters we are — for we are all children of a loving God.
President Russell M. Nelson, social media on Dr. Martin Luther King say, January 17, 2022
I've mentioned it before, not one of us has the complete picture to, therefore, understand completely the plan of our Heavenly Father. We do have little pieces of that picture though. Our responsibility is to find those pieces and put this puzzle together.
Some of us have the puzzle together more than some others do. Does that mean the puzzle can't be completed because we're behind? Is there a time limit on doing that? Is it a race?
Granted, we do have to be actively trying to find the pieces while we're on this earth, but the point is, that it's not the number or quantity of pieces that matters. It's the fact that we're looking for them.
And....its not just about each individual finding their own pieces. We are all brothers and sisters so we need to help others find their pieces too. I would venture to say that helping another find their pieces and help them put the puzzle together will make finding your own pieces that much easier along the way.
I've just about destroyed this puzzle metaphor here. Let me re-emphasize....we don't have the whole picture....yet. We only have pieces of it. Therefore, we cannot judge another. We are all trying to do the same thing. Many odmf us are just going about it differently than we are.
