Why Are We So Weak

I love the record of Moroni as found in the 12th chapter of Ether in the Book of Mormon. Moroni laments his weakness in writing and worries that we will not accept what he writes.

The Lord tells him this:

"26 ...my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness;

27 And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."

Finally Moroni concludes with this:

"41 And now, I would commend you to seek this Jesus of whom the prophets and apostles have written, that the grace of God the Father, and also the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of them, may be and abide in you forever. Amen."

Let us seek Jesus every day. Let us listen to and study the words of His apostles and prophets. Let us be partakers of His grace, that our struggle with our weaknesses will allow the Lord to make us strong.
