Quote:

Each one of us can build up Zion in our own lives by being pure in heart. Each one of us can extend the borders of Zion by gathering our friends and neighbors into the fold of Israel. (Bruce R. McConkie, "Come: Let Israel Build Zion," Ensign, May 1977, 115)

Lesson:

When Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden, many things changed. The earth changed. Instead of being a beautiful garden, the earth had deserts that were hot and dry. It had weeds and thorns growing among the flowers and trees. Some of the animals began fighting and killing.

Write the names of as many weeds as you can think of:

______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________

Write the names of some flowers or plants that have sharp thorns:

______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________

Write the names of some animals that fight or hunt other animals for food:

______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________

When Jesus Christ comes again to reign on the earth, the earth will be renewed. "Renew" means to make new. The earth will be made as it was when Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden.
