3 Nephi : 20
So, in Gospel Doctrine, from time to time, we talk about praying, and how we're supposed to pray all the time, and then we get the comments that it's impossible to "pray" all the time, and then someone else says that we need to be praying "always" in our hearts. That's true, and verse 1 of this chapter is Jesus' commandment on doing so. I just thought it was interesting I'd never seen it like that before.
I wonder why specific mention of there not being any bread is brought out. Seems that the same thing was done in the Bible. Mentioning the miracle of feeding the audience with bread that wasn't brought (or not enough brought). There has to be an analogy in that, because other miracles sited are much, much greater (sight to the blind, raising the dead, the conversion of thousands of blood-thirsty Lamanites, etc...). I wonder where the analogy, or the lesson is in the miracle of not bringing enough bread is.
Lots more to this chapter, but I've gotta run.
