“Therefore God gave unto them commandments, after having made known unto them the plan of redemption, that they should not do evil” – Alma 12:32
“This is one way of contemplating the Lord’s plan. We do not have to concern ourselves with each of its parts separately but rather to try to bring the entire picture into focus, keeping in mind what the final result will be. The Lord knows where each piece belongs so that it fits into the plan. All the commandments are of eternal importance in the context of the great plan of happiness.” – Rafael E. Pino
