After his people had gone through a long period of suffering, King Limhi reflects on the effects of straying from God’s counsel.
“O how marvelous are the works of the Lord, and how long doth he suffer with his people; yea, and how blind and impenetrable are the understandings of the children of men; for they will not seek wisdom, neither do they desire that she should rule over them! Yea, they are as a wild flock which fleeth from the shepherd, and scattereth, and are driven, and are devoured by the beasts of the forest.” (Mosiah 8:20-21)
-How much suffering could be avoided if the people of the earth earnestly sought, and lived by, the counsel of the living God of peace?
-Where can God’s counsel be found? Do you believe that the Book of Mormon is part of God’s counsel to mankind?
