The Power of the Word

Understanding Scripture

“Let us not treat lightly the great things we have received from the hand of the Lord! His word is one of the most valuable gifts He has given us. I urge you to recommit yourselves to a study of the scriptures. Immerse yourselves in them daily so you will have the power of the Spirit to attend you in your callings. Read them in your families and teach your children to love and treasure them.”

~President Ezra Taft Benson

 from The Power of the WordEnsign, May 1986, 82

    love this quote. We decided we were snacking on the Scriptures by only reading one chapter per night. No one remembers, no one knows what we read. so we are still only reading one chapter but we’re discussing each verse, the meanings of the words, the meaning of the phrases… so far so good
