This is the last challenge of the Book of Mormon/Scripture series, which I have loved doing! It’s been fun to focus on one topic—at least I think it has been!
What is your favorite Book of Mormon scripture and why?
This one is pretty self-explanatory, and you can do it in many different ways. You can just write it down in your journal, blog about it, type it up on your computer to print off. You can write a poem or a song about it, or scrapbook about it. The possibilities are many! (And you don’t have to do a Book of Mormon one, it can be one from the Bible if that’s your favorite—the point is to just record what your favorite scripture is.)
My favorite scripture is Alma 37:37. It says:
“Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning, let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.”
I don’t remember when it became my favorite, but I’ve loved it for quite awhile. It always reminds me that no matter what I do, I need to pray about it. (Well, not the everyday things like which shirt to wear—but you get my drift.) We need to keep a prayer in our hearts, pray when we go bed, pray when we wake up, and be thankful to God always. The promise if we do this, is that we will be lifted up. What a glorious promise! I know that prayer isn’t the only thing we need to do, but if we pray, then we will be led in making all the other righteous choices that we need to.
Now, I challenge you to record your favorite scripture!
