Sharing my thoughts after reading our assignment each week in Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families.
“As you read Matthew 10-12; Mark 2; and Luke 7; 11, make note of the impressions you receive from the Holy Ghost. Consider pondering and recording them.” [Header, Lesson for Mar 11-17, 2019, “These Twelve Jesus Sent Forth”.]
Journaling my impressions:

I like Jesus’ defense of John the Baptist in Matthew 11:7-11 and in Luke 7:24-30. I also like that He turns on the heads of local “powerful” folk the things that they are most getting wrong regarding power, such as His actions regarding the sinful woman with ointment [Luke 7:36-50] and regarding the picayune complainers [Luke 11:37-54].
You may also wish to explore your own impressions regarding the small write-in opportunity on Page 43, regarding Matthew 10 (“The Savior gave His disciples power”) and “Impressions I receive” (“God will give me the power I need to do my work”).
