The Fall of Adam was an integral part of God’s plan. It brought about the conditions under which we could come to earth and be tested. God’s plan also includes giving His children agency (see 2 Nephi 2:27). In this lesson, students will learn that the key to exercising our agency well is to seek to do God’s will, thus following the example set by Jesus Christ.
