December 26- January 1
The purpose of the scriptures is to help you come unto Christ and become more deeply converted to His gospel. Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families can help you understand the scriptures and find in them the spiritual strength you and your family need. Then, in your Church classes, you will have opportunities to share insights and encourage your fellow Saints in their efforts to follow Christ.
Main points to ponder
I am responsible for my own learning. John 7:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:21; James 1:5–6, 22; 2:17; 1 Nephi 10:17–19; 2 Nephi 4:15; Alma 32:27; and Doctrine and Covenants 18:18; 58:26–28; 88:118.
I need to know the truth for myself. Luke 11:9–13; John 5:39; 7:14–17; Acts 17:10–12; 1 Corinthians 2:9–11; and Alma 5:45–46.
