Daily Reminder on Sexual Purity: #2 out of 21

I, ____________________, commit to be sexually pure. By my words and my actions, I will encourage others to do the same.

“Physical intimacy between husband and wife is beautiful and sacred. It is ordained of God for the creation of children and for the expression of love between husband and wife. God has commanded that sexual intimacy be reserved for marriage.” – For the Strength of Youth

“Let me talk… about the more positive aspects of the law of chastity, because that part of the law is fundamental and important. President Packer said:

““Oh, youth, the requirements of the Church are the highway to love, with guardrails securely in place, with help along the way. How foolish is the youth who feels the Church is a fence around love to keep him out. How fortunate is the young person who follows the standards of the Church, even if just from sheer obedience or habit, for he will find rapture and a joy fulfilled.”

“Properly understood, then, the scriptures counsel us to be virtuous not because romantic love is bad, but precisely because romantic love is so good. It is not only good; it is pure, precious, even sacred and holy. For that reason, one of Satan’s cheapest and dirtiest tricks is to make profane that which is sacred.” – The Gospel and Romantic Love by Bruce C. Hafen

Have I prayed to my Father in Heaven for help resisting temptation and overcoming inappropriate thoughts and feelings?
