Do Not Fight Nor Contend

During Jesus’ ministry, He was called the Lamb of God (John 1:29), which would remove all sin. Isaiah 53:7 prophecies that He would be mercilessly slaughtered. He did not fight, nor contend.

In the same way, in Alma 23:7, the Anti-Nephi-Lehies lay down their weapons of war. They no longer fought against others, who they esteemed all as their siblings. They did not do any form of wickedness. Instead, they were very industrious (Alma 23:18). They worked with those who their enemies before.

May I remember both Jesus, and these Anti-Nephi-Lehies, as good models for me to follow.
