Monday Devotional


I Want to Be a Missionary Now (Children’s #168)


Alma 8:9-21


  • Last week we learned that Alma was going to different cities to preach.  He came to Ammonihah, which was very wicked.  They threw him out of the city and he started to move on to another one.
  • An angel came and told him to go back.  He did and met a man named Amulek, who had been told by an angel that Alma was a prophet and he should help him.
  • The people didn’t listen at first; that happens sometimes with us, too.  We may share the gospel with people who don’t want it.  That doesn’t mean you give up on them, though.  What are ways we can keep sharing with people who don’t want it?
  • What made Alma and Amulek good missionaries? What made them good friends?
  • Watch “Alma Is Commanded by an Angel to Return to Ammonihah”

Tuesday Devotional


Have I Done Any Good? (Hymns #223)


Alma 9:14–23


  • When Alma and Amulek started teaching the people, a man named Zeezrom tried to argue with them and trick them into saying the wrong thing.
  • The Spirit was with them and told them what to say.  The verses we read are some of those things.
  • One big thing they taught was the people of Ammonihah had once been righteous and had the gospel, but they turned away and became hard-hearted.   The Lord had given them great blessings, but that made them prideful.
  • What great blessings has God given us? What responsibilities come with those blessings?

Wednesday Devotional


I Will Follow God’s Plan (Children’s #164)


Alma 11:37-45


  • Alma and Amulek continue teaching Zeezrom.  They focus a lot on the Plan of Salvation. or as they called it, the Plan of Redemption.
  • What does “redemption” mean?  (serving to offset or compensate for a defect, according to Merriam Webster)Adam and Eve ate the fruit, and our bodies can now get sick and die. And we also sin.
  • They tell Zeezrom that no unclean thing can enter into heaven, so Jesus needs to come down and suffer for our sins.  We will then all be resurrected and judged by Heavenly Father and Jesus.
  • Jesus makes up for the imperfections in our bodies and spirits.
  • Your hand could represent your spirit, and a glove could represent your body. Take your hand out of the glove to show that our spirits and bodies will be separated at death. Then place your hand back in the glove to show that our spirits and bodies will be joined together again at the Resurrection.
  • How does this apply to each of us?  What is the best thing about this part of the plan?

Teach Me to Walk in the Light (Children’s #177)


Alma 10:1–11; 12:8–18


  • Heavenly Father and Jesus don’t tell us everything.  What is the reason for this that Alma and Amulek give in the verses?
  • What does it mean to “harden our hearts”? (We talked about this a lot last week.)
  • Compare learning the gospel to learning math in school or a baby learning to crawl, then walk, then run.  It’s a process; you have to learn the first parts before you can learn the second parts.
