“The Gospel of Christ is one of the greatest blessings that can be bestowed upon man. Eternal life, the Lord says, is the greatest gift of God. We can obtain that, only through obedience to this Gospel. This, brethren and sisters, is our blessing” (The Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Wilford Woodruff, p. 73).
To obtain a hope in Christ, you must learn of him. You must learn who you and those around you really are. With the knowledge and understanding that we are all beggars before the God and Father of us all, we cannot look upon the needs of others and not feel a need to help where possible. The Church shares millions of dollars every year to help those in need.
Nephi continued to admonish his brethren and their families and to lead them in the worship of their God. He found encouragement and strength in studying the scriptures and sought peace through family and personal prayer. Anger and disagreement continued to divide the family until the tension became too great. A decision had to be made for the peace and safety of Nephi, his family, and those who believed the teachings of the Lord.
