Understanding the Importance of Scripture Study

From "Understanding the Importance of Scripture Study", Elder David A. Bednar, Ricks College Devotional, January 6, 1998, mp3, video.

"The word ponder means to consider, to contemplate, to reflect upon, or to think about. The process of pondering takes time and cannot be forced, hurried, or rushed. As described by Nephi in the verses we just read, pondering is very much related to our covenant responsibility to 'always remember him." 

"the scriptural treasures we seek in our lives cannot be borrowed or loaned or obtained second-hand. We must each learn to open the vault door by applying the principle of work."
