Scriptural Highlights

A study of this lesson should encourage us to show gratitude for the Savior and for the many blessings that he and our Heavenly Father have given us.

The Book Of Psalms

The Lord Is My Shepherd

  1. Play recorded excerpt from Father Are You There, by Hugh B. Brown. A story about a reading of the 23rd Psalm.
  2. The book of Psalms is a collection of poems originally sung as praises or petitions to God. I would hope that our study of a few of these Psalms would not be academic in nature, but would cause us to also rejoice in the Lord and his wonderful blessings.

Prophecies Of The Life And Mission Of Jesus Christ

The Lord Hath Dealt Bountifully With Thee

    In addition to prophesying of the Savior's life and mission, many psalms express gratitude for blessings such as the creation of heaven and earth; the Savior's mercy, forgiveness, and love; the scriptures; and the temple. After you read each verse, consider the following:
    - What feelings are expressed in this psalm?
    - What are your feelings as you read this psalm?
    - How would your life be different without these blessings?

  1. The creation of heaven and earth.
  2. The Savior's mercy, forgiveness, and love.
  3. The scriptures.
  4. The temple.

What Shall I Render Unto The Lord For All His Benefits Toward Me?

  1. Psalm 116:12 reads, "What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits?"
  2. We are truly blessed by the Lord. We should praise him both in word and in deed.

Trust In The Lord

  1. READ PSALM 4:5. Trust in the Lord.
