Open Book Test

Open bookIn August, I arrived in Des Moines, for medical school.  Since I’ve been here, I’ve had a test just about every week.  They’ve sure kept me busy and I’m always studying for the next exam.  One morning as I was about to run out the door to school I noticed a card on my dresser.  It was a picture of the scriptures with a little saying, “Life is an open book test.  Find your answers in the scriptures.”  And then it quoted from 2 Nephi in the Book of Mormon.

I thought about that saying all day.  I’ve always liked open book tests in school.  If you were ever unsure of an answer, you could flip through the pages and find it.  It also seemed that professors only gave open book tests on the hardest of materials.

Life truly is a test.  We are tested every day, to see if we are willing to choose Christ and follow him.  He has given us the scriptures to show us the answers for our life’s test.
