By Teaching Just One

My best friend always used to say the Lord’s name in vain, and every time I heard her say it I felt bad. One night I decided to pray about it. The next day when I heard her say the Lord’s name in vain again, I told her that it wasn’t right and that I didn’t like it. That same day, she heard someone else using the Lord’s name in vain and said the same thing I had said to her. I have never heard her say the Lord’s name in vain again. This showed me that I can help lots of people by teaching just one. I am grateful that Heavenly Father helped me to tell my friend how I felt.
