Oh Be Wise...

  The scripture I will blog about today is an idea that I got from a very good friend. I have read over this scripture a few times and never noticed it. It is very short and sweet but packs a very thought provoking question. The scripture comes from The Book of Mormon, the book of Jacob chapter 6 verse 12.

  "O be wise; what can I say more?"

  This is some of the greatest advise in the scripture in my opinion. There are many different ways and many different things that we can choose to be wise in, and what is wise to one may seem foolish to another, but that is part of the reason I like it so much. The man who wrote this was a prophet of God, in this chapter he is telling the people to follow Christ, and warning them that in the last days the wicked shall perish. So this comment of be wise, is telling them to follow Christ. Keep the commandments, be good to your neighbor, help those that are in need, and when you are faced with a choice that may not help keep you on the right path, be wise! Do what you have been taught! Growing up I was taught to CTR, choose the right. If we reflect on the good things that we have been taught in life about when we are faced with a tough choice, it is far easier to be wise!
