Hello Dear Reading Friends!
I hope you are all having a FABULOUS day! I'm excited to share some thoughts from my reading today. I wanted to start off with this Daily Bread video from mormon.org. I felt that this kind of went along with the first part of Helaman 12 today.
We now go on to one of a scripture that has so much meaning to us in these last days.
Yea, how quick to be lifted up in pride; yea, how quick to boast, and do all manner of that which is iniquity; and how slow are they to remember the Lord their God, and to give ear unto his counsels, yea, how slow to walk in wisdom’s paths!
The following is a WONDERFUL talk written by President Benson but read by President Gordon B. Hinckley.
This talk was written for me. I have so many things that I can learn and work on, I pray that you feel the Spirit speak to you also as you listen to the talk. I am so excited for General Conference in just two weeks from now.
And may God grant, in his great fulness, that men might be brought unto repentance and good works, that they might be restored unto grace for grace, according to their works.
We now move on to Chapter 13. If you read the first verse you see that the Lamanites are now more righteous than the Nephites.
And now it came to pass in the eighty and sixth year, the Nephites did still remain in wickedness, yea, in great wickedness, while the Lamanites did observe strictly to keep the commandments of God, according to the law of Moses.
We then read in verse 2 about Samuel the Lamanite. Here is the story in simple terms.
Chapter 13 is so full of great scriptures. I hope you will highlight your favorites and journal how you feel about them. Samuel the Lamanite inspires me so much. What a great example of courage, faith, and obedience he is to me.
I hope you all have a fabulous day! I will chat with you soon!
