Journey through the Book of Mormon: Ether 2 (Tents by the Sea)

13 And now I proceed with my record; for behold, it came to pass that the Lord did bring Jared and his brethren forth even to that great sea which divideth the lands. And as they came to the sea they pitched their tents; and they called the name of the place Moriancumer; and they dwelt in tents, and dwelt in tents upon the seashore for the space of four years.

14 And it came to pass at the end of four years that the Lord came again unto the brother of Jared, and stood in a cloud and talked with him. And for the space of three hours did the Lord talk with the brother of Jared, and chastened him because he remembered not to call upon the name of the Lord.

How often do we reach a comfortable place in our lives and believe that we have reached our goal? We pitch our little tent by the sea and are content. We forget to ask God where he wants us to go. We become spiritually complacent. Haven’t we all experienced that? 
But Hevaenly Father want more for us than for us have tents by the sea. He wants to deliver us to the promised land. He ultimately wants to bless us with the richest of all possible blessings. That joy that we will feel will exceed all else. And yet, we forget and grow satisfied with our little tent by the sea.
