Profound lessons today...
I love our morning scripture study! I just had to say that. We are having such wonderful teaching moments in the morning. I don't even have to plan; I just read and the idea for application comes. I stop reading and we talk about the application. I no longer read to get a certain amount done; I read for the teaching moment. Here is this morning's passage and what I learned from it. Even if you are not of our faith, read on, because the lessons were important and profound today... ( the last part is my favorite)
A little background first...Nephi and his brothers have been charged by the Lord to return to Jerusalem to get the brass plates (a record containing the first part of the Bible). The oldest brother Laman made a feeble attempt and then wanted to give up. This was Nephi's response (the younger faithful brother)
