Filled with Love towards God and All Men
And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.
King Benjamin was a unique king. Instead of having others serve him, he served his people “with all the might, mind and strength which the Lord [had] granted unto [him]” (Mosiah 2:11). He erected a tower by which to teach his people the word of God. He wanted his people to worship God instead of him. King Benjamin's words and example point us toward Heavenly Father.
