 Michael Leavitt120On this Cinco de Mayo the Salt Lake Grotto is having a special "Sinkhole de Mayo" where they are out at the Pink Lime Pits and Blowhole cave both tomorrow and Saturday. It should be a fun event and made me flash back to my "Veins Bleed and Arteries Spurt" experience with you a few years ago... See http://michaeldleavitt.com/mdl/bloggers/entry/veins-bleed-and-arteries-spurt

In today's chapter Ether 4, we see that Moroni is a pretty cool Book of Mormon hero. He is very matter of fact.  If the Lord tells him to do something, then he does it.  Never is there any mention of doubt, questioning, or murmuring.  I need to learn that lesson and follow his example!

5 Wherefore the Lord hath commanded me to write them; and I have written them. And he commanded me that I should seal them up; and he also hath commanded that I should seal up the interpretation thereof; wherefore I have sealed up the interpreters, according to the commandment of the Lord.

PLEASE READ THE CHAPTER NOW

I just love the promises and blessings found in this chapter. I have felt the soothing confirmations of The Holy Ghost and have been greatly blessed in this life.  I was preserved several times in my youth when i could have dies.  Adam, I was preserved so that I might get to be your Father. I know that you have also felt this Spirit and know that is persuades you to also do good.

11 But he that believeth these things which I have spoken, him will I visit with the manifestations of my Spirit, and he shall know and bear record. For because of my Spirit he shall know that these things are true; for it persuadeth men to do good.

Make it a great day!
Love, Dad

  • I also love how simple Moroni makes things in this. My favorite verse in this is actually vs. 12. "And whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of m; for good cometh of none save it be of me." This makes it so easy. Sometimes I wonder if a thought that I had is a prompting or not. I just use this scripture. If it leadeth me to do good then it must be a prompting from Heavenly Father. It removes so much of the Gray from the world. Does it persuade you to do good? If yes: it's the Lord. If No: it's not. That easy.

    I also love the promises of greater knowledge if we will just sanctify ourselves. Heavenly father really has great things, quite literally, in store for the righteous. It's also pretty ominous when it says "Remember when ye see these things, ye shall know that the time is at hand that they shall be made manifest in very deed." (16)

    I am so grateful for everything you have done in your life to allow me to grow up knowing the truth of the Gospel dad. I just want to say thank you for that. I know that I am not perfect, and in some ways I have squandered a bit of that inheritance, but I am eternally grateful for those sacrifices you and mom have made. That is the single greatest gift I will ever receive, and I just wanted to make sure I took some time to at least express my gratitude. However inadequate it may be. I love you dad! You too mom! Thank you.
