Daily Reminder on Sexual Purity: #9 out of 21

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

“Do not allow the media, your peers, or others to persuade you that sexual intimacy before marriage is acceptable. It is not.” – For the Strength of Youth

““We learn a great lesson from Joseph. When he was presented with a temptation, he immediately separated himself from even the appearance of evil. All of us have events in our lives which find us in challenging situations.

““When we are confronted with that which is evil and degrading–whether it be the wrong kind of music, a television program, or the Internet which places us in the wrong environment–how strengthening it is to remember the story of Joseph: ‘And [he] fled, and got him out’ (Gen. 39:12). He removed himself from the temptation” (“Becoming Men in Whom the Spirit of God Is,” Ensign, May 2002, 41)…

““When Joseph was forced to choose, he was more anxious to please God than to please his employer’s wife. When we are required to choose, are we more anxious to please God than our boss, our teacher, our neighbor, or our date?” (“The Great Commandment–Love the Lord,” Ensign, May 1988, 4–5).” – Lesson 35: Genesis 38–39, Old Testament Seminary Teacher Manual, 2014

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