I went to my parents’ house for dinner. It was nice to spend time with them.
I hope to be like these brethren:
“they were still his brethren in the Lord; yea, and they had waxed strong in the knowledge of the truth; for they were men of a sound understanding and they had searched the scriptures diligently, that they might know the word of God.
But this is not all; they had given themselves to much prayer, and fasting; therefore they had the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of revelation, and when they taught, they taught with power and authority of God.” (Alma 17:2-3)
So, the secret to their strength was to search the scriptures, and pray and fast a lot. Then, they were blessed with divine power and authority.
This is what I previously wrote after reading Alma 17: An Instrument In The Hands Of God
