Spiritually Centered: SS Question

Sunday School Thought Question (for #7 The Abrahamic Covenant)

I'm doing better with some New Year's resolutions than others, but I'm determined to do most of them most of the time.  How about that for drive?!

This morning I was using the Old Testament Class Member Study Guide to find out what the Sunday School lesson would be on today.  I was impressed by the very first sentence: "In these passages Abraham seeks to be righteous and worthy of the blessings of God."  Me too!  I want that too!  But I'm taking a wild guess, he was probably better at it than I am.

So my Sunday School Thought Question for the week is "How?"  How did he seek to be righteous and worthy of the blessings of God? And how can we?

I read in Abraham 1:2 that Abraham sought great knowledge.  The footnote led me to Doctrine and Covenants 42:61.  It says, in part, "thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge."  This in turn brings joy.  I'm going to try reading my scriptures and the Ensign to see if I can also learn revelation upon revelation and knowledge upon knowledge!
