Alma 37:35 (#245)
Reflect on why Alma the Younger would want to emphasize to his son the importance of learning obedience while he was young. How has (or would have) being obedient in your youth been a blessing to you?
35 O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.
We have the example of Alma the Younger, who turned his back on sinful practices and wasteful ways. Conversion came. He became an exponent of truth. His tender words of counsel to his [son] Helaman [is a] literary [classic]. To Helaman: “O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.”
