Hector's Thoughts

Mental Toughness - Book of Mormon

Mental Toughness - Book of Mormon

Author: Hector Sosa, Jr/Wednesday, August 26, 2020/Categories: Personal, Scriptures

As I was reading my scriptures this morning, I found this little gem in the Book of Mormon's war chapters:

7 Now it came to pass that while Amalickiah had thus been obtaining power by fraud and deceit, Moroni, on the other hand, had been preparing the minds of the people to be faithful unto the Lord their God.
Alma 48:7

I hadn't noticed that before! That's pretty neat.

What comes after in verses 10 to 14 is very important as well:

10 And thus he was preparing to support their liberty, their lands, their wives, and their children, and their peace, and that they might live unto the Lord their God, and that they might maintain that which was called by their enemies the cause of Christians.

11 And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man; he was a man of a perfect understanding; yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed; a man whose soul did joy in the liberty and the freedom of his country, and his brethren from bondage and slavery;

12 Yea, a man whose heart did swell with thanksgiving to his God, for the many privileges and blessings which he bestowed upon his people; a man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people.

13 Yea, and he was a man who was firm in the faith of Christ, and he had worn with an oath to defend his people, his rights, and his country, and his religion, even to the loss of his blood.

14 Now the Nephites were taught to defend themselves against their enemies, even to the shedding of blood if it were necessary; yea, and they were also taught never to give an offense, yea, and never to raise the sword except it were against an enemy, except it were to preserve their lives.

While I was reading this I thought of George Washington and our military people. It is comforting to know that these sorts of patterns repeat themselves across thousands of years. As we are obedient to the commandments of our God, then we will see the same sorts of results in our lives.
