“And They Taught, and Did Minister One to Another”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
It was not just the twelve disciples who did the ministering and teaching. It is the responsibility and blessing given to each member of the Church to “teach one another the doctrine of the kingdom” (see D&C 88:77-80). We learn and are edified not just front being taught but also from having to study, ponder, pray, prepare, and teach one another. We are strengthened and fellowshipped not just from being served and succored but also from serving and ministering to the needs of one another. The spiritual blessings of the gospel transform lives as much from being shared as from being received.
