One of the greatest blessings we received when we came to earth is a physical body. The Word of Wisdom, found in Doctrine and Covenants section 89, teaches us “the order and will of God in the temporal salvation of all saints in the last days” (v. 2).

“All saints who remember to keep and do these sayings … shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones” (D&C 89:18).
“Inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father” (D&C 89:5).
