Book of Mormon Day 86

Day 86: Eth10-12 Moroni springboards off of the prophet Ether’s words about faith and writes beautifully about faith, hope, charity. He also writes that he feels like he and the other writers of the Book of Mormon are weak in writing and that he hopes their weakness will not be a stumbling block for those who read it. The Lord comforts him by saying, “Fools mock, but they shall mourn; and my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness; And if men come unto me, I will show unto them their weakness… My grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them” (ch12v26-27). Also v35: “If the Gentiles have not charity, because of our weakness.” It’s pretty clear that part of having charity is not taking advantage of or mocking another’s weakness. I realize more every day that we all have weaknesses and that we must be patient with each other. Christ’s grace is sufficient for all of us, and my job is to come to him so I can see my weaknesses more clearly and rely on his grace… And not to dwell on the weaknesses of others.
