YW Manual 1 Lesson 35
I have found it interesting the timing of these lessons. At a time when we are choosing the next leaders of the free world, we need to remember the morals and virtues this countries foundation was built upon.
We need to learn to get along and allow each other to choose rather than pass laws that ban free choice, while remembering the commandments and the Laws of the Lord. Breaking those commandments lead to a life of self-doubt and self-worth.
Our Heavenly Father sent us to this earth to obtain bodies and gave us the gift of Free Agency.
As we learn in the Gospel, free agency has responsibilities. We are to choose wisely what we do and say and how we act so as to not offend God and embarrass ourselves, our families and our ancestors. So that ultimately, we can return to live with Him.
(Sorry about the rant, I am a little bugged by the proposed ban on sodas larger than 16 ounces in NYC).
