1 Nephi 2:15

"And my father dwelt in a tent."

Lehi gave up more than most people are willing to give up to follow the commandments of the Lord. He gave up his house, land, gold, silver, and worldly possessions. Everything except what was absolutely necessary for survival. All of this because he understood that God knew best and would provide for His servants as they kept his commandments. It takes great faith to leave so much and follow the words of God into the unknown. I greatly admire Lehi, Sariah, Sam, and Nephi for willingly following Lehi into what they may not have entirely understood.

#Lehi, himself sacrifice much. People compare not, willing follow God, his commandment. #Lehi sacrifice home, land, gold, silver, things from world. Take only thing survive need. #Lehi understand  God know much. Give thing servant need. Need much faith leave things and follow God. Where? Don't know. Myself impress #Lehi, #Sariah, #Sam, #Nephi themself follow #Lehi understand whole, not yet.
