epiphany

As I’ve been reading the last heart-wrenching words of Mormon, along with current heart-breaking news of our day, I kept asking myself what is going to keep us from succumbing to pride and turning away from God so completely as did the Nephites, even to complete destruction? The answer that came to me is The Book of Mormon. We have greater access to the word of God and to this testament of the love of God through the Savior, Jesus Christ, than any other people throughout history. I am grateful for the iron rod that will—if I lay hold and hold fast—help me return to the love of God. It seems to me every time I have a question, the answer is love. And where better to learn to love than the book that is a witness of our exemplar, Christ.
