May 8, 2020 - They shall be one

Becoming more in tune with the divine pattern of working together in unity is critical in this day of “me first” messages that surround us. Women do possess distinctive, divine gifts and are given unique responsibilities, but those are not more—or less—important than men’s gifts and responsibilities. All are designed and needed to bring about Heavenly Father’s divine plan to give each of His children the best opportunity to fulfill his or her divine potential.

Sister Jean B. Bingham, "United in Accomplishing God’s Work", General Conference, April 2020

Heavenly Father's plan, the essence of our existence, is as daughters and sons of God. We cannot change that. That is how we were created. One is not more important than the other. Both are essential for God's plan.

Inherent with each role are differing, yet crucial responsibilities in God's plan. One role cannot survive without the other. Both are needed to progress toward eternal life. The two, indeed, shall be one.

Satan is trying to destroy God's plan in this regard, among other ways too. He whispers that gender doesn't matter. He whispers that men and women can perform the same divine purposes and responsibilities as one another. They simply cannot. They aren't intended to. That doesn't mean the one is held in higher esteem than the other. Last I checked, men cannot bear children. It is biologically impossible. The daughters of God have that divine gift.

Satan whispers that family isn't vital. That parents are not important. Men and women were designed to work together, using their divinely appointed gifts and abilities to reach our ultimate goal....together. As a family. Each member fulfilling their responsibilities. One in purpose. One in mind. One in Christ.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 5:31
