strtoupper('“T')he Welfare of My Brethren”
When Lehi partook of the fruit of the tree of life it filled his soul “with exceedingly great joy.” His thoughts then went immediately to his family, and he was consumed with a desire to have them too partake of that fruit. (See 1 Nephi 8:12.) Such are the effects of the truths of salvation on the hearts of men. We are told “great were the covenants of the Lord which he made unto Joseph [of Egypt],” yet none were greater than that he would have a righteous posterity (2 Nephi 3:4-5; JST, Genesis 50:24). So it was with Enos; having tasted of the goodness of God, he now sought above all else that the promise given Joseph be given him relative to his brethren.
