Alma 42

(April 18, 2015)

                Our desires are far more important than I think we recognize.  Alma is not speaking idly when he warns his son that if his desires remain evil that evil will be done unto him.  The more aware of the Gospel I become, the more I begin to recognize that ultimately the Lord gives us whatever it is that we want.  The key to the Gospel is changing our natures so that we want what the Lord tells us is in our best interests to want.  This is a big part of believing in God – believing the things that He asks of us are the things that we want, even when our limited understandings cannot fathom it.
