The importance of Agency!!
Agency is the ability and privilege God gives us to choose and to act for ourselves. Agency is essential in the plan of salvation. Without it, we would not be able to learn or progress or follow the Savior. There is an awesome scripture in 2nd Nephi chapter 2 verse 27 that says, "Wherefore, men are afree according to the bflesh; and call things are dgiven them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to echoose fliberty and eternal glife, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be hmiserable like unto himself." Why would God give us this privilege and ability? Why wouldn't he just tell us everything, so that we could return to live with him again. He did this because he loves us and wanted us to learn and grow. If it was all given to us there would be no reason for us to be here. I know that each of us have the oppertunity to choose for ourselves, because we are all God's children and he loves us all very much. May all of us strive today to choose those things that will bring us joy and happiness and help us return to our Heavenly Father.
