2 Nephi 28:29 -- On Letting God Talk

"Wo be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!"
2 Nephi 28:29

This made me laugh today, because I was thinking about our relationship with God as though it were a relationship with anyone else, and in that context the whole thing seem ludicrous. :)  I mean, can you imagine your best friend calling you up and responding with "Hey, didn't we talk a month ago?  Why are you calling again?"  Same with our parents or our boss, or really anyone.  We never get to a point where we say "Hey... I've heard enough" unless we are mad or irritated or trying to avoid someone.  And, hopefully, we don't feel that way about God.

Today, let's try to think of God as a friend, and to be open to what he has to say, whether we believe we have heard it before or not.  There are always new layers to every relationship, as well as additional lessons that we need to learn about pretty much everything.  No matter how much we know, God still has a lot to teach us. :)
