Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Agency goes hand in hand with responsibility.
That every man may act in doctrine and principle to futurity, according to the moral agency which I have given unto him, that every man may be accountable for his own sins in the day of judgment.—Doctrine and Covenants 101:78
Thus we see that free agency goes hand in hand with responsibility, and that consequences, good and bad, are the result of our personal decisions resulting from the exercise of free agency. And this is another principle, obedience.—Victor L. Brown

Why do our small day-to-day choices matter so much?
