4 Nephi 1:2-3

"And it came to pass in the thirty and sixth year, the people were all converted unto the Lord, upon all the face of the land, both Nephites and Lamanites, and there were no contentions and disputations among them, and every man did deal justly one with another.
And they had all things common among them; therefore there were not rich and poor, bond and free, but they were all made free, and partakers of the heavenly gift."
4 Nephi 1:2-3

Stuff like this is so cool it is mind-boggling. "Every man did deal justly one with another." "There were not rich and poor." ... Stuff like that is overwhelming. It seems so foreign to our present society. No contentions or disputations either... and these were real humans, from the same planet we live on. :) Today, maybe we can work on making some of this happen in our lives. Let's deal justly; let's not contend; let's not treat people differently based on how much money they have. ... and I'm not saying this is a snap. I think it will be tough to get through even one day without disputations or with absolute justice. But even though it will be hard, let's make the effort. Building that kind of Zion society... and ourselves into those sort of Zion people... makes every difficulty worth it in the end. :)
