“Career Change in the Book of Mormon”

“Career Change in the Book of Mormon”

It just hit me tonight—nothing new, but a clarity and touching I haven’t felt before—about the ironic switch that occurs in the books of Mosiah and Alma, in the Book of Mormon.

Aaron and Ammon, future king(s) of the Nephites and sons of the king, become missionaries; Alma the younger, preacher and son of the head of the church, becomes a ruler.

Later, Alma returns to preaching, and Ammon becomes chief judge over the Anti-Nephi-Lehites (double-check that!).

Their reasons for doing so? They loved the people and wanted to serve them.
