Virtue is a pattern of thought and behavior based on high moral standards. It includes chastity and purity. The power to create mortal life is an exalted power God has given His children. He has commanded that this power be used only between a man and a woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife. Study the meaning and importance of chastity and virtue by reading Moroni 9:9
; Jacob 2:28
; “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” (see page 101); and the section on sexual purity inFor the Strength of Youth. Also read Article of Faith number thirteen and Proverbs 31:10–31
. In your journal write the promised blessings of being sexually clean and pure and your commitment to be chaste.
Use The Family: A Proclamation to the World with the Young Women's Theme and consider what the two documents teach about the importance of chastity and marriage.
