Below is just a sample of some of the short but meaningful scriptures I have come across in study throughout my life and as I searched for hidden gems over the past few weeks for this post.
(1) Luke 17:32, “Remember Lot's wife.”
(2) 1 Nephi 13:22, “And I said unto him: I know not.”
(3) 1 Chronicles 1:25, “Eber, Peleg, Reu,”
(4) Alma 18:27, “And he said, Yea.”
(5) John 11:35, “Jesus wept”
This list just goes to show that, if you’re studying the right way, you can find hidden gems just about anywhere in the scriptures. What are some unexpected treasures you’ve discovered? Share your own short scriptures in the comments!
