Mosiah 11 – The WHY behind our temple

Wicked King Noah comes into power and builds an ornate palace and other things to sate his vanity. He even builds a temple, but God does not accept it. Do we ever strive to build a “temple” in our life to cover up sins or justify our own will? Or do we build our temple to draw nearer to God?

Mosiah 9 – Overzealous

In this chapter, we learn that we can become overzealous in doing what we want, to our own detriment (if it isn’t in alignment with God’s will). Zeniff’s people learn hard lessons over a 12-15 year period, before Ammon finds them and they have hope of deliverance.
