This scripture feasting tool is easy and FUN.
I use an orange colored pencil. Maybe you'll use green. Whatever the color, you're hunting for treasure. Hunt down your favorite verse or two from each chapter and mark it a certain color.
Happy treasure hunting. I'll be hunting too.
Here are a few of my faves that I've marked orange. I sometimes rewrite them in my own words in the margin using a phrase that applies to me.
- 1 Nephi 3:7 - God will always prepare a way for me to obey what He asked me to do.
- 1 Nephi 4:3 and 6-7 - Because God helped our ancestors we know He will help us too. Even if I don't know how it will work out, I can move forward knowing the Spirit will guide me and God will help me.
- Moroni 7:48 - I need to pray fervently for the gift of charity.
- Luke 1:37 - With God all things are possible, even if they look impossible.
|Page 8 of my Book of Mormon is marked with orange for my three favorite verses in that chapter: 1 Nephi 4:3 and 6-7. Just a note. Because I am currently doing a summer 90-day Book of Mormon challenge (which you're welcome to join me!) most of my examples of these tools will be from the Book of Mormon.|
If you want to get even more from this tool, here are a few tips.
- Write your very, very faves on a list in the front or back flap of your scriptures.
- Memorize one or more of your most inspiring faves. Elder Scott said, "Great power can come from memorizing scriptures. To memorize a scripture is to forge a new friendship. It is like discovering a new individual who can help in time of need, give inspiration and comfort, and be a source of motivation for needed change" (Ensign, Nov. 2011).
- Pull out a journal and jot a few sentences of why you like this verse or what it means to you. Writing helps the scriptures become a tool to receive personal revelation.
