LESSON ONE - True at All Times
"Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shalt cleave unto her and none else." (D&C 42:22)
"The term fidelity denotes the similarity between reality and a representation of reality" (David A. Bednar, "Things as They Really Are" Ensign, June 2010).
Questions for discussion
- How can the definition Elder Bednar gives for fidelity apply to our everyday interactions?
- What steps can we take to be "True at All Times" to our spouse?
Camille has always made friends easily and is known for her loyalty in maintaining long friendships. She has nearly 1,200 friends on Facebook and spends considerable amounts of time communicating with past high school friends, roommates, and even some past boyfriends. Her husband John is envious of the time spent on Facebook, and questions her frequent communication with others. Camille thinks John is only jealous and has begun her dialog in her secure inbox. She feels her intentions are harmless and her relationship with others is purely platonic. She is just friends with a lot of people and cannot imagine severing those relationships only because she got married.
