Alma 50

(April 26, 2015)
                There is an important lesson for each of us in this chapter.  Sometimes, when we have defeated significant enemies (vices, habits, and similar things) in our lives, there is the tendency to become complacent and desire to ‘rest from our labors’ for a while.  But Moroni here sets a much better example.

                When the larger battles are complete, Moroni dedicated himself to erecting defenses against their return, or in clearing out lesser threats.  So too, when we find ourselves having a rest from the major conflicts of our lives, should spend our time building strongholds for the challenges to come or weeding out the pernicious (though perhaps comparatively minor) weaknesses so they are not in place to lead to our destruction when the larger trials return.
