He was sent among other servants to watch the flocks of Lamoni; he became a simple shepherd. Undoubtedly Ammon had had the privilege of having servants in his household, in the household of King Mosiah.

The King’s Son

He knew what it was to be royalty, to be treated with dignity. He knew what was expected of servants—how they should work, their loyalty. He knew the attitude it was necessary to possess in order to please the king. He knew it must also be sincere, from the depths of his soul. A certain number of Lamanites who had watered their flocks stood and scattered the flocks of Ammon and the servants of the king, and they scattered them so that they fled many ways.

Now the king will slay us, as he has our brethren because their flocks were scattered by the wickedness of these men.

Would that our Father, our Heavenly King, could say this about his children—that we remembered all of his commandments to execute them. What would our Heavenly King have us do as his children? We should be faithful in filling every assignment. We ought to be virtuous and pure and trustworthy. They also told their father what he had said to the king.
