"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." - Articles of Faith 1:13

The Source of Good
Jesus Christ is the source of every good thing:
11 But he that abelieveth these things which I have spoken, him will I visit with the manifestations of my Spirit, and he shallbknow and bear record. For because of my Spirit he shall cknowthat these things are dtrue; for it persuadeth men to do good.
12 And whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of me; foragood cometh of none save it be of me. I am the same that leadeth men to all good; he that will bnot believe my words will not believe me—that I am; and he that will not believe me will not believe the Father who sent me. For behold, I am the Father, I am the clight, and the dlife, and the etruth of the world. (Ether 4:11-12)
