REMEMBER Is one of my favorite words. It became important to me when I taught seminary a few years ago. I decided that when the word REMEMBER was in a scripture it must be important.
And when it says REMEMBER, REMEMBER together we should really pay attention. Here are a few scriptures that are important to me.

Helaman 5:12
….. REMEMBER, REMEMBER that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

Doctrine and Covenants 18:10
REMEMBER the worth of souls is great in the sight of God

"We cannot gauge the worth of another soul any more than we can measure the span of the universe. Every person we meet is a VIP to our Heavenly Father. Once we understand that, we can begin to understand how we should treat our fellowmen. " click here to read more
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Doctrine and Covenants 3:3
REMEMBER, REMEMBER that it is not the work of God that is frustrated, but the work of men

How many times do we get upset because of something someone said or did and blame it on the church. Remember, the Gospel is perfect, not the people. We are trying but we have a long way to go to reach perfection
