I am not really a big Star Wars fan (I know, I know). AND Yes, I've seen the movies, once, long, long ago when they first came out. (I can't help it, I'm more the Romantic Comedy type). I recently stumbled upon this fun acronym for studying the scriptures. C3PO. And even though I don't really like Star Wars, I thought this was cool. Here's how it works:
Make a commitment about when and where and for how long you will study.
Pray before you read and as you read. "Heavenly Father, help me understand the messages that are meant for me. Help me know the truth of these things. . . ."
Mark the scriptures as you read. Turn them into a treasure map so that you can return at appropriate times to review the things you have learned. Take notes and record insights in your scripture journals.
Take time to think about what you have read and to ask yourself some questions: Why is this account or story or verse or word in the book? Why was this included? What does it mean to me?
Do the things the scriptures and the Spirit teach you to do.
I saw this idea here.
