Relief Society Lesson #10: Scriptures by Donna

Lesson 10 "Scriptures" was a wonderful opportunity to hear sisters share their 'favorite' scripture and, perhaps, the experience endearing them to the particular scripture. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we accept four books under the designation of the standard works of the Church: the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price. In addition, inspired words of our living prophets are also accepted as scripture. The participation from sisters reinforced the blessing the scriptures are in our lives, the strength they give, and the inspiration to continue in times of trial and challenge. What would you share as a favorite scripture that has given you strength and encouragement? Here are some of those shared on Sunday.

Helaman 5:12

Proverbs 3:5-6

Romans 1:16

Matthew 25:35-46

3 Nephi 11:29

Alma 29:1 and also verse 9

“Every Latter-day Saint should make the study of this book (Book of Mormon) a lifetime pursuit.” (Elder Marion G. Romney) President Benson reminded us that the Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion as a witness of Jesus Christ, as the keystone of our doctrine and also of our testimony. What a great blessing of strength and love are the scriptures in our lives.
