Scriptures and Brass Serpents

Our lesson in Young Women's today was on Scripture Study. The following quote caused me to pause and reflect on my priorities...

"I fear that many of us rush about from day to day taking for granted the holy scriptures. We scramble to honor appointments with physicians, lawyers, and businessmen. yet we think nothing of postponing interviews with Deity - postponing scripture study. Little wonder we develop anemic souls and lose our direction in living. How much better it would be if we planned and held sacred fifteen or twenty minutes a day for reading the scriptures. Such interviews with Deity would help us recognize His voice and enable us to receive guidance in all of our affairs. We must look to God through the scriptures." Elder Carlos E. Asay

Could it be that our easy access to the scriptures is as the brass serpent was for those in ancient Israel? All we have to do is look to the scriptures through regular exposure to the messages they hold to be blessed and strengthened.

It's so simple... Let's not disregard it because of the easiness of the way.
