And it came to pass that I beheld a tree, whose fruit was desirable to make one happy.—1 Nephi 8:10
This precious fruit symbolizes the wondrous blessings of the Savior’s incomparable Atonement. Partaking of the fruit of the tree also symbolizes that we embrace the ordinances and covenants of the restored gospel.—Neil L. Andersen
