Never Could a People Be More Blessed…and More Prospered – Ether 10:28

28 And never could be a people more blessed than were they, and more prospered by the hand of the Lord. And they were in a land that was choice above all lands, for the Lord had spoken it.
(Ether 10:28)

Moroni tells us that this generation of Jaredites was as blessed and prospered as anyone could be. What led to this prosperity and happiness? Their characteristics and decisions closely mirror the people of Captain Moroni (which I wrote about yesterday).
  1. Righteousness – Their king “did that which was good in the sight of the Lord.”
  2. Hard work – “They were exceedingly industrious.”
  3. Community – They destroyed the serpents in the land southward, built a great city, and agreed to preserve the land southward for hunting. 
  4. Creativity – They “did make all manner of tools” to do their work efficiently and “did work all manner of work of exceedingly curious workmanship.”
Today, I will follow the example of these Jaredites. I will live joyfully by being righteous, diligent, collaborative, and creative.
