A while back I got to thinking about a couple of scriptures in the Book of Mormon. One in reference to Ammon and the other to the 2000 stripling warriors.
Alma 18:10 Now when king Lamoni heard that Ammon was preparing his horses and his chariots he was more astonished, because of the faithfulness of Ammon, saying: Surely there has not been any servant among all my servants that has been so faithful as this man; for even he doth remember all my commandments to execute them.
Alma 57:21 Yea, and they did obey and observe to perform every word of command with exactness; yea, and even according to their faith it was done unto them; and I did remember the words which they said unto me that their mothers had taught them.
I know this is a bit of a dichotomy given I’m Green (Insight Personality Instrument) and prone to question authority, not follow the rules or norms unless I see the reason, and tend to question everything before moving forward.
Having said this, I am striving to have faith in those things I don’t understand and move forward with them and to remember all of the Lord’s commandments and follow them with exactness.
I am striving to extend this principle in to all facets of my life. While working at Allsnax I worked hard to do all that I was asked with exactness.
So that is my thought for the week.
