Interview with Diety
The best way to get something done is to do it first thing in the morning. Never procrastinate until late in the day something you want to accomplish. There will surely be obstacles and other things come up that will side track you in your efforts. Family scripture study should be one of these things.
“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” (Carlos Asay in Conference Report, Oct. 1978, p. 79; or Ensign, Nov. 1978, pp. 53–54).
Scripture of the Day: Genesis 49:2
