Scripture this week: mosiah 17 in this chapter it is abinadi and kind noah abindadi has taught the people of kind noah and king noah about christ and that they need to repend the king and his servants do not like that and they threaten to kill him. they say in verse 8 that if he takes back what he said about christ they will not kill him, but abinadi is more faithful than that i love verse 9 and 10 because he bears testimony that what he has said is true and will not take it back abinadi is put to death but dies with a very powerful testimony of christ and will be blessed in the life to come. a lot of times we think that blessings from the church come in this life only, but we know that there is life after this life yes we are going to recieve blessings in this life but i think even more we will recieve more blessings in the life to come if we are obedient, faithful, stand up for what is right and testify of our savior. now i dont think any of us in these days will be put to death if we share our testimony with our friends, but when our friends co workers or anyone invite us to do something against or church  are we going to give into their offer or stand tall like abanidi and prove that our love for christ is worth more than things of the world... this was worded terrible i know but i loved this chapter and i read it in spanish so i probably didnt understand everything right haha but i know that if we are faithful like abanidi and stand tall we will recieve the grandest of blessings and we will not have room to recieve it i hope you all understand what im trying to say haha sorry and i love you all so much thanks for everything
