Matthew chapter 4, verse 4 reads: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
God’s words are in the scriptures. The scriptures include the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Convenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. These books tell about God and God’s people from the very beginning.
The Bible tells us about the creation; Noah and the ark; David and Goliath; and the life of Christ. The Book of Mormon is about the people here on the American continent. The Doctrine and Covenants and The Pearl of Great Price are God’s words to the people of his church today.
The scriptures teach us what is right. They can help us solve our problems. They can also help us stay close to the Lord. Our prophet has told us that we should read the scriptures every day. I hope we will all try to read the scriptures.
