Though the visiting teaching messages are chosen months (a year?) in advance, it often seems like the messages are picked in response to events of the world. Such would be the case this month. July's message is another in a series: Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ: Forgiving and Merciful.
In a nation that has been caught up with the Supreme Court ruling regarding marriage, how great is the need to remember forgiveness! Emotions have run high, and people on both sides of the decision can benefit from the message of mercy and forgiveness.
Read the entire message here, and feel free to print this handout to accompany the lesson, if you'd like.
Thanks for the example of Jesus Christ.
