Mosiah 3-4

Study Question: How do we balance feeling “even less than the dust of the earth” and feeling close to and loved by God?

Summary: King Benjamin foretells the coming of Christ, the miracles Christ will perform, and the Atonement. The Atonement covers all sins and saves children and those who sinned in ignorance. Repent and do not judge each other. Remember your commitment to the Lord.

Scripture: Mosiah 4:9 “Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.”

Bonnie W: I balance the feeling of being less than the dust of the earth with seeing myself through the eternal perspective of God. Right now in our mortal state, we are fallen and flawed. But we have the potential to grow spiritually until we can be gods ourselves. Remembering that without Christ’s Atonement, we would be forever cut off from the presence of our Heavenly Father will help us be humble, and remembering our potential will give us hope and help us strive to be better.
Yiksee L: I love that! I think of seeing babies and how we know they’ll grow and become so much more even though they see every hard thing to be insurmountable at the moment and cry at everything. That’s like how we are compared to God’s perspective.
