10. I had stopped after 10 verses. Gaaaak! The goal was supposed to last a lifetime, with each person acquiring 52 new verses a year to strengthen their testimonies and resolve to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
So, I'll be repenting on my slackardness and starting the #ponderize thing again. This week, I have chosen Alma 37:6 to remind myself that doing simple, seemingly insignificant things like focusing on a verse a week will lead to greater spiritual strength down the road. I know they add up, like protective tiles on a roof keeping out the rain, or scales on a dragon's hide. Now, more than ever before, I need the strength that immersing myself in scripture study and pondering the truths contained therein brings.
