Have you ever been lost? Did you want help to find your way? I think the prophet Nephi may have felt that way sometimes. He said:
—Read 2 Nephi 32:3—
Nephi taught us that the words of Christ can tell us all things we should do. When we are lost, we can turn to the words of Christ for direction.
When Lehi was lost, he used the Liahona — a kind of compass given to him from God — to find his way. The Liahona pointed which direction to go, and had instructions from the Lord written upon them.
This is a picture of the liahona may have looked like.
–Hold up The Liahona image from the Gospel Art Book —
W. Rolfe Kerr, a General Authority, has taught us that the scriptures can be a liahona to us. He said, “Let us in faith take the words of Christ into our minds and into our hearts as they are recorded in sacred scripture and as they are uttered by living prophets, seers, and revelators. Let us with faith and diligence feast upon the words of Christ, for the words of Christ will be our spiritual Liahona telling us all things what we should do.” (W. Rolfe Kerr, “The Words of Christ—Our Spiritual Liahona”, Ensign, May 2004, 36–37)
I want to find my way when I am lost, like Lehi did. I can read the words of Christ to find my way, too.
