Thou shalt take the things which thou hast received, which have been given unto thee in my scriptures for a law, to be my law to govern my church.—Doctrine and Covenants 42:59
Observance of law brings harmony, peace, order; while without observance of law there is found confusion, and sorrow, remorse, failure—whether it be the laws of God or the laws of man.—ElRay L. Christiansen
