Joshua 8:34-35 -- On Reading the Scriptures

"And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.
There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which Joshua read not before all the congregation of Israel, with the women, and the little ones, and the strangers that were conversant among them."
Joshua 8:34-35

In order to do God's will, we have to know it.  I like this story of Joshua reading everything to the people.  A giant group scripture study. :)  This seems like a good example for what we should be doing, not only as individuals, but as families and as larger groups.  Reading and talking about and supporting each other in living the commandments of God.  Today, let's read, and let's listen, and let's do the things that God asks, and be thankful for the scriptures and the reminder they are to us in our lives.
