He was so bold. But beyond that, Abinidi knew who he was representing and what his mission was AND he knew that the Lord would protect him until he was finished.
I wish I felt that… knew that… was brave like that. Sadly, I’m a wimp.
If only I could glow and say Touch me not! like Abinidi......
I enjoy the way that Abinidi explains the reason behind the Law of Moses. It was to keep them focused on what they should be doing; focused on the Savior. The gospel math works like this… Commandments + Ordinances (including baptism and the sacrament) + The Atonement = Salvation. Unfortunately, even with all the things to focus on, they still missed the mark. They had prophecies and scriptures, and still they didn't get it.
It makes me want to be all the more aware of my responsibilities and what is expected and asked of me by the Lord in my life.
PERSPECTIVE- that's one of my favorite words. Keep the eternal perspective. That's the key to seeing earthly things in the right light.
Easy to say. Sometimes very hard to do.
