"And king Mosiah did cause his people that they should till the earth. And he also, himself, did till the earth, that thereby he might not become burdensome to his people, that he might do according to that which his father had done in all things. And there was no contention among all his people for the space of three years."
This is absolutely unbelievable if you look at it from a modern perspective... the *king* ... the person with all the power... he goes out and farms, because he doesn't want to be a burden to the people. Incredible. Wouldn't you love to have a leader like that right now? :) I wonder how life would change if we actually had someone around who was as unselfish as that. So, let's try to be that type of person, first of all... and second, let's remember that *God* is that type as well. He doesn't give us rules to burden us, or to force us into subservience. He gives us rules to help make us better people... to build us up, and help us to be happier. He loves us just as Mosiah sincerely loved his people... and there are no leaders better than that.
