What I do to deepen my scripture study
There are lots of podcasts, blogs, experts, even talks in general conference will teach you the gospel but only you can study the gospel. Only you can have a desire to understand the gospel.
Occasionally I will, but usually I don’t use a lot of outside study aids with the gospel because I feel like it gets in the way of my own curiosity.
CURIOSITY is my #1 tip for deepening your scripture study.
Stop trying to force yourself to “get something” out of the scriptures, or even to understand them. Instead focus on “what am I curious about?”
- 1 Nephi 8:1 Nephi mentioning gathering seeds right before an entire chapter on Lehi’s dream.
- Sacrifice in the Bible Dictionary.
- I’ve been pondering the word “arise” from the scriptures for several YEARS now.
Why It’s Not Easy
Curiosity requires us to NOT KNOW something, which our egos, and the world will tell you is the worst. thing. ever. But curiosity makes you open, receptive and THAT’S when the Spirit will work with you.
I hope you take this one very simple, but perhaps not so easy, tip and apply it in your own scripture study.
