11 And now I read unto you the remainder of the commandments of God, for I perceive that they are not written in your hearts;…
Consider Elder Russell M. Nelson’s experience with the Sabbath Day:
In my much younger years, I studied the work of others who had compiled lists of things to do and things not to do on the Sabbath. It wasn’t until later that I learned from the scriptures that my conduct and my attitude on the Sabbath constituted a sign between me and my Heavenly Father. With that understanding, I no longer needed lists of dos and don’ts. When I had to make a decision whether or not an activity was appropriate for the Sabbath, I simply asked myself, “What sign do I want to give to God?” That question made my choices about the Sabbath day crystal clear. (“The Sabbath Is a Delight,” General Conference, April 2015)
Today, I will strive to internalize the commandments of God. I will remember that lists of guidelines, as helpful as they may be, cannot address every situation I will face (see Mosiah 4:29). I will, however, be able to choose righteousness and be a true disciple of Jesus Christ in all circumstances if His commandments are written in my heart.
