Mosiah 29:26 -- On Power and Right

"Now it is not common that the voice of the people desireth anything contrary to that which is right; but it is common for the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right; therefore this shall ye observe and make it your law—to do your business by the voice of the people."
Mosiah 29:26

This is a scripture from when Mosiah, the king, was talking to his people and telling them that judges were a better way to go, since kings can be good (like his father King Benjamin), but they can also be bad, and cause a lot of evil.  Mosiah used his power for good, and cared about his people more than himself... which is probably how all power should be used.  That's what God does for us as well.  He uses his power to help us become better, if we just listen to him.
Today, let's listen to God, and let's take advantage of our opportunities to learn and grow.  And in our current societies and governments, let's make sure our voices are desiring what is right.
