What does a helm have to do with our lives?
16 You know, brethren, that a very large ship is benefited very much by a very small helm in the time of a storm, by being kept workways with the wind and the waves.
17 Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.
Doctrine & Covenants 123:16-17
No matter how large the ship, still the helm is quite small. Yet small adjustments with the helm dramatically change where a ship will end up. In a storm, the helm is critical to keeping the ship facing the right direction. So it is with choices in our lives. Like the power of the helm, our choices decide our direction in life. As President Thomas S. Monson often says, “Decisions determine destiny.” Even small decisions can make huge impacts in life.
