At the astonishingly young age of 16, Mormon was appointed by the people of Nephi to take charge of military operations comprised of thousands of men. As we know, he later went on to do many other great spiritual works for the Lord including the abridgment of the gold plates into the Book of Mormon. Even today, 1600 years later, we are greatly blessed by his amazing courage and spiritual feats.
Today we have our own armies to lead and own plates to abridge. Our specific challenges may be different, but the purpose is the same. God wants all his children to reach their divine potential. Like Mormon, we have the opportunity to be instruments in God's plan and help him in ways that only we can.
