How to Be Preserved

Actually that title sounds like a chapter from the Book of Coming Forth By Day, (better known as the Egyptian Book of The Dead).

Section 88 of the Doctrine and Covenants is replete with deep and profound principles that I have yet to fully grasp. I did think that verse 34 made an interesting comparison with the last verses of the Word of Wisdom.

D&C 88: 34 "And again, verily I say unto you, that which is governed by law is also preserved by law and perfected and sanctified by the same. "

D&C 89:18-21 "And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones;
And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint. And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen. "

In fact, I think we could find similar passages in the Book of The Dead.
