Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow Second Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah May 5-15-2011

Talents come with us from before we were born as far as we have developed them at that time.  Talents will go with us after we die so far as we develop them in this life.  I don't know how much of our
talents in this life come from a gift from God or through our focus in the pre-existence.  Perhaps both.  Maybe He worked with us on specific things before we were born.

Moses having Aaron as a spokesman.  I was virtuous about parallels to this practice of calling a spokesman.  It was determined by the class that this Aaron may have been being called to be a counselor.  One brother mentioned there was a stake president that never conducted meetings and left that to his counselors.  Another mentioned president kimball relied heavily on his counselors due to a speech problem.

With that perspective would it be appropriate to envision Moses getting the guidance from God based on his calling and instructing Aaron to approach Pharaoh?  When a priesthood action needed to be done
perhaps that is when Moses acted.

In that I still have trouble envisioning Moses standing back while Aaron approached pharaoh, but I have likely been greatly biased by Charlton Heston's performance as Moses in The Ten Commandments.

The other thing that makes me think there was more to Aaron is that the lesser priesthood was named after him.  Is there a comparison to be made between Aaron and Melchizedek?

Luke 15
One of the great things about having a worldwide church is that there are current supporting materials in general church magazines and web sites in time for the lesson we are all on.

We would be ecstatic to have 90% home teaching, but there are 10% still not seen.  Even though we are happy we don't stop.

Luke 15:17
 17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

Psalms 119:59
59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

There are those that spend time figuratively eating with the pigs and feel they can't get out of it.  If we humble ourselves we can come back and have the ring, robes, riches, and authority.

Missionary the returned last year from the Arizona Tuscan mission spoke to us.

Matthew 25:34
 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
