- Every question that Alma asked those people, we’re going to ask ourselves.
- Alma taught a lot of things, but the biggest message is that Jesus can change anyone’s heart if they let Him.
- Has your heart been changed? How can you keep it changed?
Choose one of the questions in today’s reading and write an answer.
Hard heart, soft heart (halfway down page)
Lead, Kindly Light (Hymns #97)
- What do you think it means to have the Savior’s image in our countenance?
- It means when others see us, they see us acting like He would.
- One way to do that is following the path back to Heavenly Father that He walked.
- How did Jesus show us the path back to Heavenly Father?
- What choices would be on the straight path? The crooked path?
What choices can I make today that will keep me on the straight path?
Run races with each other, but do it silly (crooked and straight paths)
I Know My Father Lives (Children’s #5)
- Alma tells the people that he knows all of these things are true. How does he know them?
- The Holy Ghost told him! This is the same Alma that saw an angel, but he doesn’t say that the angel is how he knows the truth.
- Testimonies come from the Holy Ghost and feeling it in our hearts. Laman and Lemuel also saw an angel, but they didn’t have testimonies.
- How can we gain our own testimonies? How can we make them grow? How do baby animals grow?
- How can we know our testimonies are growing?
How does the Holy Ghost talk to me?
Oh, Hush Thee, My Baby (Children’s #78)
- After Alma taught the people in Zarahemla, but then he went to the people of Gideon, who were a lot more righteous.
- Because they weren’t making the same mistakes and sins, he could talk to them about happier, better things – the Savior and His birth.
- What do we learn about the Savior in these verses?
- What does Alma teach about following the Savior’s example? What things does he list that we should always do?
What do I need to do to stay on the right path?
Make a paper heart like the one here, but use the virtues in today’s reading.
I Stand All Amazed (Hymns #193)
- Do you ever feel like no one understands you?
- One of the best parts of Alma’s talk with the people of Gideon is about the Savior.
- What did the Savior suffer for us in the Garden of Gethsemane? How can that help me not feel alone?
- How does it help us to know that Jesus understands our struggles? How do we receive His help?
- Make a chart with the headings What the Savior suffered and Why He suffered and list what you find in Alma 7:7–16.
- How does His suffering make a difference in our everyday lives?
- The Savior not just the punishment of our sins, but also our pain, hurt, etc. What does this mean for you?
What can I do when I feel alone or misunderstood?
