Importance of scripture study

Give every person in the class a piece of paper and pencil and tell that they just found out that they didn’t have much time left and they need to write down their deepest desires for their family member and friend! Things that they wish they could tell them and thing they wanted to be remembered for! This really gets the class thinking! Then after a few minutes without warning have them pass their papers forward! Then once you have them in your hands take a couple and rip them in half, then throw a couple away, and put a couple under a book on the table. Then ask the class how it felt to have their testimonies their desires for their families tossed aside like they didn’t matter! This is how the prophets feel when put the scriptures aside and don’t read them and study them!
