I love the scriptures!!! Matthew 13:36 Review: Did I tell you that I love the scriptures??? No kidding, I really do. They are the path that allows me to know the mind and will of God. They are the way that I come to know who I am despite what the world in it wickedness or its confusion tries to teach me. As I search the scriptures the Holy Ghost teaches me, not always when I am at the reading but in clarified moments of routine tasks, when my heart, soul, and mind are free to ponder and consider what I have read. The passages today testify greatly and show the need to read with your whole mind and being. To contemplate not only the words before you but all of your life experience and all of the education formal or informal that you have received as well as the knowledge you have of other scriptures, especially the promises and covenants that God has made with the children of men. We can discover weaknesses that are part of being human such as the love of good food which we see when we read how Isaac loved Esau because he ate his venison. We can see where focus on mortal or temporal issues alone can cause us to take lightly our most precious gifts that God has given us as we look at how Esau was willing to give up his birthright to Jacob. We can see how Heavenly Father views the world as we read the Lord's interpretation of the wheat and the tares. Would we argue with the Lord that there may be those on the earth today, though they once were filled with light and truth, they have chosen to turn away from those things that lead them to eternal life and will hold them bound and stop their progression unless they change course. The world tells us today that there are no evil ones, I do not believe this Matthew 13:38 states there are those who have chosen to deny who they are and settle for so much less than they are. I don't believe we should accuse or harm them but we do ourselves injustice if we deny their existence and attitude. Till next time, GBWY
