2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations; spare not, lengthen thy cords and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left, and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
I don’t live in a tent, so I’m thinking today of some more modern interpretations of the passage above:
- Schedule more time with your family, because you will find relationship-building activities to fill that time.
- Bring your “A game” to your job every day, learn as much as you can, and build your network, because amazing opportunities will become available to you in the future.
- Learn how to be an effective missionary, and pray for opportunities to share the gospel, because those opportunities will come.
Today, I will prepare myself to receive blessings in the future. I will assume that Heavenly Father has great things in store for me and that I need to prepare myself now in order to be capable of accepting and utilizing those blessings when they come.
