As I read Ether 7, I thought about how a lot of stuff was being done, but the Lord was not in it. He was not being remembered, until the last verse:
“and he remembered the great things that the Lord had done for his fathers . . .” (Ether 7: 27)
When people do not remember what the Lord has done, we suffer, miserably sometimes; but it is when I remember what the Lord has done for me, then I feel the peace and love, which only comes from the presence of the Holy Ghost.
This is what I previously wrote after reading Ether 7: Building The Kingdom Through Industry
