Covenants are protective and enabling

“A covenant made with God should be regarded not as restrictive but as protective. Covenants with Him protect us from danger. ...

“When we choose to deny ourselves of all ungodliness, we lose nothing of value and gain glory known only to those who obtain eternal life. Keeping a temple covenant is not constraining but enabling. It elevates us beyond limits of our own perspective and power.”

- Elder Russell M. Nelson, Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “Prepare for Blessings of the Temple,” Ensign, Mar 2002,
