Reading every day

Today’s prompt from The Daily Post asks us to share our favorite daily rituals.

Mine? Reading my scriptures.

I’ve set a goal for myself this year to read the entire Standard Works (The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine & Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I read, I’ve rediscovered the peace that travels with me because I have taken time to read my scriptures in the morning. Sometimes I’ll wait till the end of the day to read, and it’s not quite the same, though the peace of the Spirit still fills me when I read about the Ancient Israelites of the Old Testament receiving God’s law through Moses at Mount Sinai, or when I read in the Book of Mormon about Lehi teaching his sons about the redemption found through the Holy Messiah.

As I read, I find things that I need to spend time studying, such as when the Lord promised Israel that, if they would obey his voice, keep his covenants, “then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people” (Ex. 19:5). Just what does it mean to be a peculiar treasure to the Lord? I’ve begun finding some answers already, but I can’t wait to see what else the Lord wants me to learn.
