This last Sunday I got to hear my oldest son bear his testimony on his own for the first time. It was during our large family reunion. This was the last day of our reunion and to close the reunion we decided to have a devotional from our grandma and then end with a testimony meeting. Mikey had heard several people bear their testimonies (including mine) and expressed to me that he would like to do the same. He said he didn't know what he would say.
"Michael," I told him, "all you have to do is say how you feel about the Savior. Speak from your heart." He nodded his head and when he had the chance to stand, he did.
Out of this sweet little 8 year old boy came one of the most beautiful testimonies I have ever heard. He bore his testimony on love, stating that everyone needs love and everyone should show love. Jesus loved everyone. Then he said that he loved his family and he knew that loving others was what the savior would want us to do, and he closed in the name of Jesus Christ.
Sometimes in our life we like to over complicate things. But the Lord has told us several times to be like little children. Michael's testimony was exactly what everyone needs to hear. Some people think that just loving someone is overly simple. It is, and it is exactly what our Savior did. He showed us his perfect love towards us.
