The Zoramites

One Week of Studies
  1. Recite Ether 12:6.
    Read Alma 32:1-21.
    • Verses 14-16: It is better to have faith and humble yourself than to be blessed with a humbling experience. Consider which you would prefer: 1) to have faith and obey the Lord now; or 2) to have Heavenly Father allow you to experience trials and challenges so that you will become humble and turn to him?
    • Verses 17-21: Similar to being humble, Heavenly Father would prefer that you have faith on the words of His servants instead of giving you a physical sign to prove the truth.
    • Verse 21: Mark, copy, and memorize this verse. Write what it means to you.

  2. Recite Alma 32:21.
    Read Alma 32:22-43.
    • Verse 27: Alma wants you to do an experiment - not a scientific experiment, but a spiritual experiment.
    • Verses 28-43: The spiritual method of experimenting. Try it yourself. Think of a truth or principle that you may doubt or question. Apply this experiment to your situation.
    • Take some time today to plant a real seed. As you care for it and it begins to grow, let it remind you of your growing testimony.

  3. Recite Alma 32:21.
    Read Alma 33.
    • Verse 19. The type spoken of here is the serpent on a stick that Moses had. When snakes bit the Israelites, all they had to do to live was to look at the stick that Moses held up. This is symbolic of how we need to turn to the Lord when we are spiritually injured.

  4. Recite Alma 32:21.
    Read Alma 34:1-16.
    • Verse 1: Amulek also teaches them so tht they hear the testimony from more than one person.

  5. Recite Ether 12:6.
    Read Alma 34:17-41.
    • Verses 17-27: These verses answer these questions:
      • Who should I pray for?
      • What should I pray for?
      • When should I pray?
      • Where should I pray?
      • How should I pray?
      • Why should I pray?
    • Verses 28 & 29: Think about what you can do to be more charitable.
    • Verses 30-35: This is a good lesson on repentance. Think about something in you life that you need to repent for. Repent now.
    • Verses 32-34: Mark, copy, and memorize these verses. Write what they mean to you.
    • Verses 37-41: Amulek lists things that the Zoramites need to do to be more righteous. What things on this list do you need to work on?
