3 Nephi 26:9

"And when they shall have received this, which is expedient that they should have first, to try their faith, and if it shall so be that they shall believe these things then shall the greater things be made manifest unto them."
3 Nephi 26:9

This verse is talking about the abridged nature of the scriptures that we're reading, and also seems to apply to a lot of things, not just scripture. It would be awesome to get more scripture (especially here when Christ visited the people): to know more, understand more, all of it. But then I read this verse, and the one after (which gives the consequence of not believing these things), and I realize that sometimes we don’t really believe or accept or act on what we have already. So I guess that is what we need to work on first. Let’s prove that we can handle what we have, and that’s when we’ll get more. :) We do, sometimes. Conference talks and getting to hear the words of the prophets add to what we have... and we can increase even more if we value it and use it. Today, let’s start by exercising a little faith, a little prayer, and making today a day where we remember God through it all... proving to ourselves that we can apply some of our scriptural lessons. :) If we keep at it, I’m certain that we as individuals will learn more, even if we as a people don’t get another book of scripture for a little while.
