To all the mothers who have lovingly put their kiddos and family before themselves. who sacrificed, gave of their time and talents. who sat and listened, taught and most of all loved unconditionally... and to those who are missing their moms today -- happy mother's day. may you enjoy your day. #rdmagic#rhonnadesign#mothersday#upliftandinspire
in his final recorded epistle to his son moroni, mormon sorrowed for the wicked state of the nephites. he urged moroni to labor diligently to help the nephites repent. mormon also recounted the sufferings of the people caused by their wickedness. notwithstanding the corrupt condition of his people, he encouraged moroni to be faithful in jesus christ and have hope in the promise of eternal life.
“our capacity to feel controls our behavior in many ways, and by inaction when our feelings prompt us to do good, we deaden that capacity to feel. it was jesus’ striking sensitivity to the needs of those about him that made it possible for him to respond in action.
at the other end of the spiritual spectrum are individuals such as nephi’s erring brothers; nephi noted their increasing insensitivity to things spiritual: ‘[god] hath spoken unto you in a still small voice, but ye were past feeling, that ye could not feel his words’ [1 nephi 17:45].
when we become too encrusted with error, our spiritual antennae wilt and we slip beyond mortal reach. this can happen to entire civilizations. in his lamentation to his son moroni, mormon notes the deterioration of the nephite society. the symptoms include a wickedness so profound that mormon’s people were described by him as being ‘past feeling’ [moroni 9:20]. … imperviousness to the promptings of the still small voice of god will also mean that we have ears but cannot hear, not only the promptings of god, but also the pleas of men” (neal a. maxwell, a time to choose , 59–60) #lds#ldsseminary#bookofmormon#sharegoodness#rhonnadesign
