“Book of Mormon | King Benjamin: Salvation for Self, Family, Others in Mosiah 4”

King Benjamin follows a “salvation for yourself, then your family, then others” outline in his sermon in Mosiah 4.

Mosiah 4:5-12 is about individual salvation; Mosiah 4:14-15 are about saving your children; and Mosiah 4:16-26, 28 are about helping save others.

Mosiah 4:27 says: And see that *all these things are done in wisdom and order*; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order.

And King Benjamin has ordered them for us: save yourself first, then your family, and then others, both temporally and spiritually. No doubt there are times/ will be times we would like to help out of order—a sign of charity—but we are unable to, unless we be counted unwise, or exceed our strength; but with time and faith, or by exception from the normal wisdom and order by the Spirit, God will allow us to do all three.
