"Buy it, spend it, wear it, flaunt it, because you're worth it" morality is not passé, but our conscience is there to guide us. The 10 commandments are just that, commandments. They are not suggestions.
“Your [patriarchal] blessing is not to be folded neatly and tucked away. It is not to be framed or published. Rather, it is to be read. It is to be loved. It is to be followed. Your patriarchal blessing will see you through the darkest night. It will guide you through life’s dangers.” -Thomas S. Monson, Ensign Nov. 1986
