1 Nephi 5:21-22

So I was reading in my scriptures the other day and learned something. I was in 1 Nephi 5:21-22;

21 And we had obtained the records which the Lord had commanded us, and searched them and found that they were desirable; yea, even of great aworth unto us, insomuch that we could bpreserve the commandments of the Lord unto our children.
22 Wherefore, it was wisdom in the Lord that we should carry them with us, as we journeyed in the wilderness towards the land of promise.

Applying it to today, we have obtained records (the Book of Mormon) and we are commanded to search them. When we do, we find that they are desirable, and of such great worth to us. By searching them, we are able to teach the commandments to our children... which is kind of why we are here. When we actually search them, they become a part of us, engraven in our hearts, and we carry them with us as we journey in the wilderness (this earth life) into the land of promise. What a great blessing we have to have the scriptures in our lives, and what great things we can glean from them if we are attentive and have open hearts! I love the scriptures!
