Jacob 3

Because the Lamanites obeyed a commandment from Lehi that the Nephites weren’t obeying, namely to only have one wife, the Lord promised to bless the Lamanites.  As a matter of fact, He says “The Lord God will not destroy them; and one day they shall become a blessed people” (v. 6).  Why exactly?  Look at verse 7.  “Behold their husbands love their wives, and their wives love their husbands; and their husbands and their wives love their children.”  If we followed this example of the Lamanites, would we be similarly blessed?  I don’t know.  But what could it possibly hurt if we tried?
