It mattereth not

This evening my institute teacher quoted four verses from the Doctrine and Covenants that had a phrase in common.

“But, verily, I will speak unto you concerning your journey unto the land from whence you came. Let there be a craft made, or bought, as seemeth you good, it mattereth not unto me, and take your journey speedily for the place which is called St. Louis.” (D&C 60:5)

“And it mattereth not unto me, after a little, if it so be that they fill their mission, whether they go by water or by land; let this be as it is made known unto them according to their judgments hereafter.” (D&C 61:22)

“And then you may return to bear record, yea, even altogether, or two by two, as seemeth you good, it mattereth not unto me; only be faithful, and declare glad tidings unto the inhabitants of the earth, or among the congregations of the wicked.” (D&C 62:5)

“And let all the moneys which can be spared, it mattereth not unto me whether it be little or much, be sent up unto the land of Zion, unto them whom I have appointed to receive.” (D&C 63:40)

Four revelations in a row the Lord pointed out that making a decision is more important than making the right decision. Sometimes there is a right and wrong answer to a decision, but often, the Lord trusts and wants us to decide for ourselves. My HWN today was this reminder of my life-long journey to becoming an effective decision maker :)
