In treating these relics (in the chiastic order of Nephite, Jaredite, Nephite again), there is a steady theme of gaining eternal life through revealed guidance and grace from the Lord. There is a course we must navigate in this life, and these small revelatory means can help. We must constantly seek revelation and exercise faith in Christ to stay on course. Here is some beautiful counsel from Alma 37:
 Preach unto them repentance, and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ; teach them to humble themselves and to be meek and lowly in heart; teach them to withstand every temptation of the devil, with their faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.Alma 37 is a chapter well worth reading and pondering in detail, as is my favorite chapter in the Book of Mormon, Alma 36.
 Teach them to never be weary of good works, but to be meek and lowly in heart; for such shall find rest to their souls.
 O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.
 Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.
 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
