Alma 37-39


Study Question:
What does the Liahona represent in your life? What can you do to follow its directions to keep moving forward?

Chapter 37, Alma’s commandments to his son Helaman. Alma counsels him to keep the scriptures bright, be diligent in keeping the commandments of the Lord, beware of works of darkness, doctrines to teach others, importance of prayer and counselling with the Lord, how the Liahona works, and the path is prepared.

Chapter 38, Alma’s commandments to his son Shiblon. Alma counsels him to continue to put his trust in the Lord and to be aware of pride.

Chapter 39, Alma’s commandments to his son Corianton. Alma counsels him to turn away from iniquity and repent and to prepare for the coming of Christ.

Alma 37: 41
“Nevertheless, because those miracles were worked by small means it did show unto them marvelous works. They were slothful, and forgot to exercise their faith and diligence and then those marvelous works ceased, and they did not progress in their journey;”

Rachael D: The scriptures are a Liahona in my life. Alma tells Helaman that he must keep all of the records clean and bright. He explains the power contained in them to bring the Lamanites to the knowledge of Christ. If we have faith then the liahona will tell us where we should go and this miracle can happen daily. If we don’t we won’t progress on our journey. Alma says we should give heed to the word of Christ as this will point us to eternal bliss.
