Quote by L Tom Perry

Upon arriving at Jerusalem, they cast lots to decide who would go to the house of Laban and ask for the brass plates. The lot fell to Laman. He approached Laban, "and behold, it came to pass that Laban was angry, and thrust him out from his presence; and he would not that he should have the records. Wherefore, he said unto him: Behold thou art a robber, and I will slay thee" (1 Nephi 3:13). Laman escaped with his life but without the brass plates.

One thing that strikes me about this first attempt is that the brothers did not seem to have a good plan. This teaches us an important lesson that we can apply to our study of the scriptures. Let us show our commitment to reading the Book of Mormon by approaching our study with a specific plan.

In his article in the Ensign and Liahona, President Hinckley issued "a challenge to members of the Church throughout the world and to our friends everywhere to read or reread the Book of Mormon." Then he offered us a plan to accomplish the challenge: "If you will read a bit more than one and one-half chapters a day, you will be able to finish the book before the end of this year"
