Abish

While reading about Abish last night (see Alma 19), I couldn’t help think about her situation.

When she was younger, her father had some sort of vision, which was significant enough to convert her to Christianity. Despite her new-found faith, however, she kept it hidden. I imagine it was because of the consequences she assumed would befall her once her people found out she was following the Nephite religion.

That must have been tough for her.

True Testimony

In elders quorum today, we were discussing a true testimony. One elder commented how a true testimony needs to be based on Jesus. Another commented that a true testimony should lead us to action For example, if we have a true testimony of tithing, we pay tithing.

The thought came to me that perhaps these two ideas can combine into one main idea, which is that a true testimony based on Jesus would see us mirroring our lives after His.
