Lessons From Alma 43

Micheala has some good insights at in her new post on Alma 43.

I would add that Alma 43 exhibits what the Sunzi described as "fatal terrain": Throw [soldiers] into a place where there is nowhere to go and they will die rather than flee. When they are facing death, how can one not obtain the utmost strength from the officers and men? When soldiers have fallen in deep they have no fear.

So as Micheala points out, the inspiration of God and love of family can motivate a soldier just as much as "fear". Great points Micheala.
