I am not so great at consistently reading my scriptures. I'm working on it. I'm sure you've notice in your own reading, though, that sometimes some scriptures just pop out, as though they were never there before and someone just slipped them in.
Today I was reading in Words of Mormon. He talks about the destruction of the Nephite people and then does a great lead-in to the reign of King Benjamin. We mostly remember King Benjamin for his speech around the temple, where everyone gathered to listen to him and to pledge themselves to the church of Christ.
In my mind I have always pictured King Benjamin as good, stalwart, and mild mannered. His reign and his battles are not described in such detail as the reign and battles of subsequent rulers, but in the Book of Mormon, King Benjamin's story actually starts with battles and wickedness.
The last verse of Words of Mormon struck me today. Here, Mormon is describing King Benjamin:
Wherefore, with the help of these [other prophets and men of God], king Benjamin, by laboring with all the might of his body and the faculty of his whole soul, and also the prophets, did once more establish peace in the land.
"All the might of his body." "The faculty of his whole soul." That doesn't sound like a guy who does things half-heartedly or piecemeal. He's putting everything he has into it.
That's pretty cool.
