Parables From Relief Society: Three Talented Sisters

Three Sisters were called.
     To the 1st Sister: I need you to teach a class of 5 sisters. Your unique skills, and the way you present them, will bless their lives and help them.
     To the 2nd Sister: I need you to visit with 2 sisters. They need your knowledge and testimony each month.
     To the 3rd Sister: I need to you to serve 1 sister. It will take time, but if anyone can touch her, it's you.

The 1st Sister held her class.
     Taking their newfound skills home, 5 sisters bless their families and more than 10 were ultimately helped by this good 1st Sister.

The 2nd Sister faithfully visited her 2 sisters with a companion.
    Often, an adult daughter would join her mom when the 2nd Sister was there, and through the 2nd Sister's efforts, more than 4 were blessed each month.

The 3rd Sister could not believe that she was only asked to help one sister. Didn't she have unique skills, too? Wasn't she making any difference in the ward?
     So when the Spirit told the 3rd Sister to make a phone call, she buried her head in her book. When the Spirit told the 3rd Sister to get up and walk to a certain house, she buried her head in the pillow.

On Sunday, the 1st and 2nd Sisters felt closer to God, and the 3rd Sister buried her head in her hands.
    The 1st Sister received a call: I need you to serve one sister. It will be hard, but she needs to know God remembers her and wants her to come back. 

"[B]ring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!" D&C 18:15
