Captain Moroni builds strongholds around every city in their land, to protect them from their enemy. What kind of strongholds have I built about my testimony of Jesus Christ, to keep the enemy from chipping away at it or destroying it completely?
We learn more about some strong and mighty men in this chapter–both for good and evil. Some stand in the limelight, such as Moroni, but we can be “no less serviceable” in God’s kingdom as we exercise faith in Jesus Christ, even when we receive no fanfare or attention. Strong and mighty doesn’t only apply to those whose names are recorded in the history books.
Captain Moroni unfurls the title of liberty in this chapter, prepared to fight for their families, their religion, and the cause of Christians. What are we willing to do to fight for these blessings, so they aren’t stolen by leaders with wicked designs?
In the second part of this chapter, we see how Captain Moroni prepares his people to defend themselves against their enemies, who are coming to battle against them. We are also in a spiritual battle for our souls. We can learn lots from Moroni on how to prepare to fight for righteousness today.

This chapter shows the plight of the refugee Lamanites that leave their homes because the rest of their people want to slaughter them. The Nephites show Christlike love in their acceptance and protection of their fellowmen. How can I do better at loving my neighbor as God wants me to do?
