    Elder Uchtdorf brought up the “It mattereth not” principle in his January talk to the single adults. It’s one of my favorite concepts and I’ve brought it up from time to time where it may matter. He extended it far further than I ever have (e.g., which major brand of beans to buy), extending it out to marriage and what jobs we choose. I decided to discuss this in my high priest group tomorrow. In researching for it I noticed your great post on it. If you haven’t seen the talk here’s a link to it. Keep up the great thinking and writing. https://www.lds.org/broadcasts/article/worldwide-devotionals/2018/01/the-adventure-of-mortality?lang=eng
