Journey through the Book of Mormon: Ether 10 (He Remembered)

2 And it came to pass that Shez did remember the destruction of his fathers, and he did build up a righteous kingdom; for he remembered what the Lord had done in bringing Jared and his brother across the deep; and he did walk in the ways of the Lord;
Again, memory plays such a critical role in whether a king is righteous or not. Shez walks in the ways of the Lord because he remembers the tender mercies of the Lord in bringing his people across the ocean. If we remember the role that God plays in blessing and sustaining us, then we are going to be able to remain faithful no matter what obstacles and trials are in our way. On the other hand, when we forget the hand of the Lord, we begin to rely on our own light and are led away by pride and arrogance. Remembering the Lord is the great secret to being able to remain true to him.
