And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is white, yea, and pure above all that is pure; and ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, neither shall ye thirst. —Alma 32:42
The Book of Mormon is one of God’s priceless gifts to us. It is both sword and shield–it sends the word of God into battle to fight for the hearts of the just and serves as an arch defender of the truth. —Tad R. Callister
