A Scripture a Day

Daily scripture study is vital to our spiritual welfare and should be done consistently. Here’s a great tool!

Daily scripture study is vital to our spiritual welfare and should be done consistently without question. But what about throughout the day as you sit pounding the keyboard in your office? Do you ever stop and ponder back on what you learned that morning or consider the scriptures at all? A busy day can keep your mind away from the gospel and most important things in life. Luckily DailyMormon.email can help. It’s a website that allows you to receive a random scripture everyday. You can have it emailed or texted to you. I recommend having it emailed so it isn’t limited to a certain amount of characters. When I say random scripture I truly mean random. Many times they are uplifting. For example:

2 Nephi 25:29: And now behold, I say unto you that the right way is to believe in Christ, and deny him not; and Christ is the Holy One of Israel; wherefore ye must bow down before him, and worship him with all your might, mind, and strength, and your whole soul; and if ye do this ye shall in nowise be cast out.

And other times the scriptures are just funny because you don’t know the context:

Jeremiah 48:6: Flee, save your lives, and be like the heath in the wilderness.

Proverbs 15:17: Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

Judges 20:5: And the men of Gibeah rose against me, and beset the house round about upon me by night, and thought to have slain me: and my concubine have they forced, that she is dead.

I just hate it when thugs break in and kill my concubine… don’t you?

A few of us in my office signed up for this and enjoy quizzing each other on our daily scripture. We try and see if we can remember the context of the scripture or the reference. Nonetheless, it’s just a perfect way to stop and focus on the good word for a few minutes.

To sign up for your daily scripture go to http://dailymormon.email. Enter basic information—choose how you want it sent to you—choose time of day. Finally choose what books of scripture you want the scriptures coming from. Then you are ready to be enlightened at least once a day.

How do you focus on the scriptures during a busy work day?

  1. Hmmm…gotta provide my full name, email address, & cell phone – even if I only want the email version. The "Information Use and Disclosure" portion of their privacy policy looks like it was written by Mark Zuckerberg.

    No thanks, I can randomly open up the scriptures all by myself.

    1. I emailed the site creator and he said he will adjust the form so it isn't required. He said to feel free to enter a made-up name until the fix happens.

  2. Hey Kurt: Signed up for the program but it STILL requires everything, full name, email, and phone, no matter which way you want it sent to you.

  3. I have a passion for memorizing verses so I wrote an iOS app that also auto-schedules verses for review. I just submitted a new version and a free version for app approval. Check it out if you are interested! LDS Scripture Power Memorization
