Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer has a regular Works For Me Wednesday (WFMW). This is my first post. Hopefully I’ll be able to make this a regular part of our blog.
I’m no scriptorian, but I’ve wanted to increase my knowledge of the scriptures for a while now. I know the stories of the scriptures, but I want to be able to quickly cite/find scriptures for the situations I am in. For some reason when I read the scriptures straight through it doesn’t “stick.” Dan and I have started studying topics, and creating scripture chains. It’s made all of the difference in my study. I feel like I am learning more and getting a better grasp on where things are in the scriptures.
Here’s a scripture chain from our study on Monday on Charity.
1. Luke 10:25-38 Parable of the Good Samaritan (for a history of Samaria, see John 4:9 and 2 Kings 17)
3. Moroni 7:45-48 I knew Moroni said these words, but I didn’t realize just how similar they were to Paul’s words in Corinthians.
By doing this, I learned exponentially more than I had been on my own. Our discussion brought us closer together. We also included quotes from the modern-day prophets, but I’ll have to look around to find the printout he prepared for the lesson. It works for us. Hopefully it will work for someone else too.
