The Savior has taught us that He is the light of the world. (John 8:12) However, He has also taught us that we are to be the light of the world! (Matthew 5:14) So how do we do this? The answer is simple, by doing as He did and serving daily.
Every day leading up to Christmas we (you!) can focus on a different Christ-like behavior and spread His light throughout the world.
Day 6 is “Jesus Read the Scriptures and So Can You”
One way we can share in our scripture reading is to have regular family scripture study. This is our fifth year offering a scripture reading chart, but if this is your first year joining us let me explain a little in how these charts are set up.
Obviously, every day has a date you can mark off when you read. Every week has a heart, which is to keep track of Family Home Evenings and the bottom has months for temple attendance.
If you would like to start today and not wait for January 1st, you can find the 2016 version here.
This is our family’s first year using the chart for the entire year. I printed off a big 16×20″ poster of it at Sam’s Club and we have it hanging in the hall outside our children’s bedrooms and we read every night before bed. The kids get excited to put the stickers on and we have only missed once this whole year! Not every night is perfect, but we have been perfect about reading every night.
