(July 5, 2015)
I was struck again, while reading this chapter, how the Lord spoke to Nephi seemingly at the very time that Laman and Lemuel were rejecting the command of their father. I am left to wonder what blessings Laman and Lemuel left on the table by not accepting that commandment from the Lord.
How often do I do that in my life? How often does the Lord give me instructions to do something difficult, but something which promises His blessings to pour down on me, and I shirk and so the blessings are given to another? I have been blessed to see many miracles in my life, but what miracles have I missed and not been blessed to see because of my stubborn disobedience?
