Abiding Precepts – Mosiah 6

Read the full chapter here: Mosiah 6

Passage #1

And it came to pass that there was not one soul, except it were little children, but who had entered into the covenant and had taken upon them the name of Christ.

Mosiah 6:2

Precept #1

Covenant with God to take upon you the name of Christ.

Do your life and decisions reflect a lifestyle worthy of the name of Christ? How do you keep your covenants to take upon you the name of Christ? How is Heavenly Father keeping His?

Passage #2

. . . and also had appointed priests to teach the people, that thereby they might hear and know the commandments of God, and to stir them up in remembrance of the oath which they had made . . .

Mosiah 6:3

Precept #2

Listen for God’s reminders to keep your covenants, and listen to and believe those He has sent to remind you to do so.

Is it easy for you to remember to keep your covenants? Do you believe the prophets and apostles and other men and women God sends us to encourage us to do so? Or is that a difficult thing to do?

Passage #3

. . . that thereby they might hear and know the commandments of God . . .

Mosiah 6:3

Precept #3

Know the commandments of God.

Do you know the commandments of God? Where can you find them? How do you identify what a commandment is and what is not?

Passage #4

And it came to pass that king Mosiah did walk in the ways of the Lord, and did observe his judgments and his statutes, and did keep his commandments in all things whatsoever he commanded him.

Mosiah 6:6

Precept #4

Walk in the ways of the Lord and observe his judgments and statutes.

What have you observed about the ways God judges and works in the world?

Passage #5

And king Mosiah did cause his people that they should till the earth. And he also, himself, did till the earth, that thereby he might not become burdensome to his people . . .

Mosiah 6:7

Precept #5

Work alongside those you lead – do not become their burden to bear. When you aren’t leading work hard to be as self-sufficient as is possible for you to be.

How self-sufficient are you? As much as you can be? Is there more you can do than you currently are doing? How does it feel to unnecessarily be someone else’s burden?
