Success Skills A – The 5 Basic Habits
– The Church commissioned a study several years ago to find what helped young people remain active in the Church throughout their lives. The findings were the habits of PERSONAL DAILY PRAYER and PERSONAL DAILY SCRIPTURE STUDY. Since we have been instructed in the scriptures to pray continually, we have included the habits of Personal Daily Prayer Morning and Night. Since we have been asked to read from the Book of Mormon Daily and another Scripture daily, we include the Habits of reading from each, each day. Finally, since Service was added to the fourfold mission of the Church under President Monson, we added Daily Service as the 5th Basic Habit as it helps us to keep in the mode or develop the mindset of Christlike service to others. Thus, these habits help us not only stay active in the Church, but help mold us and shape us into Christlike persons.
We sincerely hope that you will teach your student this brief lesson. Or, if YOU are the student, you will take the time to start adding this to your daily routine. We know it works miracles, because it has done so in our lives and in the lives of others. It is proof of Doctrine and Covenants 130:20-21 –
“”There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundation of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated –
“And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.”
The Blessings of reading the Scriptures daily; praying daily, and serving daily are truly great. If you wish to know the Lord and Our Father in Heaven, and be close to Them, this is a good place to start.
