Words of the General Authorities:
Using your agency to choose His will, and not slackening even when the going gets hard, will not make you God’s puppet; it will make you like Him. God gave you agency and Jesus showed you how to use it so that eventually you could learn what They know, do what They do, and be what They are. (D. Todd Christofferson, “Moral Agency”, BYU Speeches January 31, 2006)
