"Tell them to read the Scriptures" (Packer; S. Dilworth Young)

Years ago, Elder S. Dilworth Young of the Seventy taught me a lesson about reading the scriptures. A stake was struggling with tensions and difficulties among the members, and counsel needed to be given.
 
I asked President Young, “What should I say?”
 
He answered simply, “Tell them to read the scriptures.”
 
I asked, “Which scriptures?”
 
He said, “It really doesn’t matter. Tell them to open up the Book of Mormon, for instance, and begin to read. Soon the feeling of peace and inspiration will come, and a solution will present itself.”
