Everyday I take time to read my scriptures. I usually read my scriptures at night and before I read anything else...like my current book that I am reading for the 2017 Reading Challenge that I am participating in.
I have a routine when I read scriptures and I thought I would share it here...
Before I start reading, I say a small prayer. This helps me to get focused on the words that I will be reading.
The first thing I read is a daily devotional from:
book is full of 365 devotionals...one a day for an entire year. I started reading this over a month ago and I have to say that the devotionals are thought provoking and inspiring. There are scripture references at the end of each devotional that I read from the KJV Bible.
I then read a couple of chapters from the Old Testament of the KJV Bible.
Finally, I read from the Book of Mormon/Doctrine and Covenants/Pearl of Great Price.
Do I take notes on my reading? In a way I do. I underline scriptures that 'pop out' at me and I will write a few words in the margins to remind me why they 'popped'.
This is what I do on a daily basis. On Sundays I do a little bit more as I like to revisit any scriptures that were discussed or mentioned/referenced during church services (Sacrament, Sunday School, Relief Society).
Do you study scriptures? If so, what is your routine?
