Limhi’s people are in bondage to the Lamanites, but it takes them a few hard knocks and lessons before they finally are humbled by degrees. What phase of humility are you in at the moment?
Nephi is commanded to make a duplicate record (like his father’s). He doesn’t understand why God wants him to do this, but He trusts that God must have a good reason. Do we have such trust in God, or do we complain, doubt and show a lack of faith when we don’t understand the answers to everything He asks us.
