I Will Give You Rest

Do you remember when your faith and joy were full to the brim? If that time seems lost, it can be found again.

Be Ye Therefore Perfect

Jesus said, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." Now, without cheating, can you remember the context of these familiar words?  Certainly the words are a profound directive in themselves, but are we missing anything by studying this verse in isolation?

Why do ye ponder these things in your hearts?

After Nephi writes concerning the doctrine of Christ1, he feels compelled to continue.  He feels as if, even after he has spoken with plainness, his audience (us!) do not understand what we should do.

My Soul Delighteth in Plainness

Before closing his prophetic writings, Nephi feels compelled to share a few more teachings about the doctrine of Christ.  He promises that he will speak plainly concerning this doctrine so that we can understand his prophesying.  What does he mean by this?  Is he saying that he will "dumb it down" for us simpletons so that he can get it through our thick skulls?  I don't think so.
