Alma 54 – Boldness

This chapter shows an exchange between two bold men–Moroni and Ammoron. One stands boldly for truth and liberty. The other stands boldly for evil and captivity. We must pray to be discerning today, to figure out what others stand for today…and then use boldness in our own lives to stand up for the cause of Christ, in a way that would please Him.

Alma 53 – Spiritual Safety Walls

The Nephites build walls to keep their prisoners inside, so they can’t turn against them. We must build spiritual walls of safety to protect us from temptations and weaknesses that can destroy us. This chapter explores things we can do to be like the stripling warriors that step up to protect the Nephites in these dangerous circumstances.

Alma 51 – Inner discord

Moroni had built strong fortifications around each city to protect them from their enemy. But we see in this chapter that they lose 7 strong cities all at once to the Lamanites. What caused this great loss? Can we be susceptible to the same weaknesses that Moroni’s people were today?

Alma 48 – Strong and Mighty

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.
