How have we been blessed by the choices of our ancestors and how can we bless both our ancestors and our descendants through our choices?
Giddianhi tries to persuade the Nephites to surrender, but instead they prepare for battle. Because of the Nephites’ preparation, righteousness, and trust in the Lord, they defeat the Gadianton Robbers. Prisoners are taught the gospel and those who enter into a covenant are set free and those who do not are punished according to the law.
3 Nephi 5:20
“I am Mormon, and a pure descendant of Lehi. I have reason to bless my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, that he brought our fathers out of the land of Jerusalem, (and no one knew it save it were himself and those whom he brought out of that land) and that he hath given me and my people so much knowledge unto the salvation of our souls.”
Rachael D: I like 3 Nephi 3:25. They united themselves together in one land and became one body. In all the war chapters the faithful always unit together to fight their enemies. They always prepare themselves spiritually as well as temporary. We need to pray and prepare with all our hearts for the battles we face in our lives.
