Young Women Values - Virtue


Virtue is the quality of purity. One is said to have virtue when they keep themselves clean and unspotted from sin. To remain virtuous in our modern world grows evermore difficult and increasingly requires a young woman to stand alone. But remaining virtuous is like a light shining in the darkness.

Speaking to His followers, the Savior taught, ®Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick... Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.® (Matthew 15:14-16)

Etched on the side of this lamp that lies hidden under a bushel basket are the seven continents reminding each of us that when we remain virtuous we truly are the ®light of the world.®
