Why “Treasure” the Scriptures?

1 April 2009 2 Comments

This month’s Visiting Teaching message to Search the Scriptures Diligently is great! I’m sure most of us could spend a little more one on one time with our scriptures, especially me. I’m glad I get to find fun and creative ways to motivate myself and others to read and search the scriptures more.

Here’s a cute mini Treasure Chest Printable which includes just a few reasons taken from the message which tells us why we should “treasure” the scriptures.

Instructions:

  1. Print in color on white or light colored cardstock.
  2. Cut out treasure chest, 4 gems & key quotes. Each 3”x1” inches.
  3. Score and fold treasure chest on dotted lines.
  4. Adhere tabs on outer edges of treasure chest.
  5. Place the “gems” & key inside the chest.

When my husband and I taught in the Primary we loved finding fun ways to teach the kids and when I read this month’s message, this Sharing Time lesson popped into my head and I knew what I wanted to make for the sisters I Visit Teach. Taken from a Sharing Time lesson found in the June 2000 Friend Magazine titled “One of God’s Greatest Gifts.” I did have to enlarge it a bit and add a few of this month’s quotes to make it work. Hope you like it.

I haven’t made mine yet but I’ll post a picture of it when I do or if you’ve made it already send me a picture of how yours turned out and I’d be happy to post it here for all to see.

    I came across this by accident–if there are such things! What a great site. I cannot wait to let our VT coordinator know about it. Do keep sending those great ideas on line. It’s exciting to learn of such talents available for us to use.
