Agency is the gift to choose for ourselves. Heavenly Father gave it to us before we came to earth. Jesus Christ volunteered to be our Savior so we could keep our agency. Satan wanted to take it away.
I like Jesus’ plan. Even though it is more work to learn what is right, it is more fun to choose for ourselves. Now that I know how to get myself dressed, I like to choose my own clothes instead of my mom telling me what to wear.
Many choices are not right or wrong. My favorite color is green. Cameron’s favorite color is pink. Neither of us is right or wrong. It doesn’t really matter what our favorite color is.
But some choices do have a right and wrong. Stealing is wrong. Hitting is wrong. Helping is right. Saying sorry is too. As we learn what is right and wrong, we should use our agency to choose the right!
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
