Avoid the fiery darts!
"For, behold, you should not have feared man more than God... Yet you should have been faithful". (Doctrine and Covenants 3:7-8) What a marvelous message for us today-to be more worried about respecting God and following in His ways than being swayed to follow the ways of "man". Look in verse 8 at the blessings that come when we are faithful: God's extended arm, His support against the "fiery darts" (and even the arrows) of the adversary and His presence in "every time of trouble". Samuel understood this doctrine. Joseph learned it in a very personal and poignant way, and gave us Section 3 and 10 to teach us an invaluable lesson.
