There is just too much in this chapter to ever possibly deal with it all. But the main thrust of this chapter is that there are two pathways before us at all times – the way of the righteous and the way of the wicked. We are each free to choose which of these paths that we will walk down. But we also must accept the temporal and spiritual consequences of that choice. Should we choose the path of righteousness, we must expect pain and difficulty throughout mortality, but with the promise of an eternal fullness of joy. If we walk the path of wickedness, our lives might be better (from a carnal perspective), but in a moment that life will be over and we will have an eternity to regret our mistakes.
