Principle 3: Agency - The Gift of "Choice" is One of the Greatest Gifts of God

The prophet Joshua counseled the people about agency when he said: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve. . .but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

We were given our agency by a loving Father in Heaven. President Marion G. Romney said, "Agency means the freedom and power to choose and act. Next to life itself, it is man’s most precious inheritance" (Marion G. Romney, Ensign, May 1976, 120).

President David O. McKay wrote, "Next to the bestowal of life itself, the right to direct that life is God’s greatest gift to man. . . . Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give" (in Conference Report, Apr. 1950, p. 32).

The prophet Lehi, in speaking to his son Jacob, explained: "For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so. . . righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad" (2 Nephi 2:11).

The gift of agency was such an important subject that a war was fought in heaven because Satan sought “to destroy the agency of man” (Moses 4:3). We should do everything in our power to thank a loving Father and Son for this wonderful right to choose—and then use that agency as wisely as we can.
