The Scriptures are amazing!
Dear Family,I will never get to a point when I have learned everything. The scriptures are so complicated and full of significance. It amazes me how we read the stories, learn the message that is sprinkled on top, but we never ask what more we can learn from this passage of scripture. For example, how many sons did Lehi have? Lamon, Lemuel, Sam, Nefi, Jacob, and Joseph. How many rebelled? 2. 2/6. 1/3. 1/3rd rebelled... how many people rebelled against Gods plan and followed Satan? The scriptures tell us everything we need to know. It makes me so sad how sometimes we read them without studying them. Dont get me wrong, the messages sprinkled on top are wonderful, and it is wonderful to read the scriptures, but why dont we have this intense desire to learn? How is it that we can be happy with primary school answers our whole life? We read the scriptures, and we think we know what they are saying, so we accept it and move on. That is not how it should be. I would like to challenge you to understand the scriptures more deeply.
