Amaleki's last counsel to us, at the end of the plates of Nephi to believe in the Gifts.

"And it came to pass that I began to be old; and, having no seed, and knowing king Benjamin to be a just man before the Lord, wherefore, I shall deliver up these plates unto him, exhorting all men to come unto God, the Holy One of Israel, and believe in prophesying, and in revelations, and in the ministering of angels, and in the gift of speaking with tongues, and in the gift of interpreting languages, and in all things which are good; for there is nothing which is good save it comes from the Lord: and that which is evil cometh from the devil." (Omni 1:25)

This mirrors what Mornoni's last counsel to us was at the end of the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10  Both prophets, ending the records pressed how important these things are.  What could be more important than recognizing we don't have gifts, and if that is our awful case, then offering our whole soul as an offering (to the Lord himself, and not an intermediary) and recieving that which he desires to bestow?
