Article Twelve

It's time for another Article of Faith. The timing on this one works pretty well, because the election's coming up! Article twelve:

"We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."

This is another one that's pretty straightforward. We believe in not breaking the law. (I think this goes without saying, but of course we don't believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates all at the same time. Basically it means we believe in following the secular leaders, too.) And that's why it's very important for us to vote, because we don't want the law to force us to do anything against our religion.

Today I'm thankful for having more coffee cake to look forward to, the great lessons we had at church today (we had a discussion on the importance of pondering, and prayerfully thinking things over for ourselves), finally making it out of Fort Fermata, having an extra hour last night (so we didn't lose any sleep despite talking forever and ever), and having the opportunity to vote on Tuesday.
