My parents and I have begun reading the Book of Mormon every day (well, trying to), and we email the family insights which we pick up in our readings. I've decided to post some of my own, personal insights here, in an effort to get back to the Svithe cycle thinger. Some days reading provides a lot more inspiration than other days, so I hope you'll forgive me if some of my posts seem lame or not very well thought out. For more information on the Book of Mormon or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), please visit Mormon.org orscriptures.lds.org (both are hyper-linked, so feel free to click away)
Today we (I) read Enos. I like verse 12. It says, "And it came to pass that after I had prayed and labored with all diligence, the Lord said unto me: I will grant unto thee according to thy desires, because of thy faith." But I think that it is also important to remember what is written in verse 15: "Whatsoever thing ye shall ask in faith, believing that ye shall receive in the name of Christ, ye shall receive it," which verse reminds me of Mosiah 4:21 which adds "whatsoever ye ask that is right." So, I guess that you must ask in faith those things which are right (in accordance with God's will for us), believe that you shall receive it, and also labor with diligence.
