Had to play a lot of catch-up last night due to an extremely busy weekend.  In Alma chapter 48 we get to hear a lot about Moroni, and we encounter my favorite verse in the BOM.  First, Moroni, he pleads with the Lord that he might know whether or not his people should take up arms against their enemies and is key in inspiring faith in his people.  We know he has a strong heart, strong faith, and a strong relationship with our heavenly father.  There have been times when i have been concerned about my relationship with my heavenly father.  i often feel that i'm not doing enough.  that i should be better; that i should be "like unto Moroni" (17) but one time while reading the book of mormon i was absolutely floored by verse 19:  "Now behold, Helaman and his brethren were no less serviceable unto the people than was Moroni; for they did preach the word of god, and they did baptize unto repentance all men whosoever would hearken unto their words."  So i'm not Moroni.  I just have to be me.  As i strive to live the gospel and abide by the precepts i am taught, i am no less serviceable to the Lord than Moroni.  :)
