So tonight I went to a missionary preparation class (mission-prep). It was wonderful, we talked about following the inspiration of the spirit. We also talked about how spirit will always be with us, and it will direct us in all things. Then we went to D&C and read how the servant that is directed in all things the same is a slothful and not a wise servant.
So we talked about how sometimes the lord relies upon us to make our own decisions, and that we need to use our free agency but be willing to submit and follow the spirit. It was a wonderful and spiritual discussion.
