Mention the Word of Wisdom and most people think immediately of its prohibitions against wine and strong drink, its warnings that "tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly." Some members of the church have emphasized various aspects of the positive injunctions about the use of fruits, grains and the flesh of animals and birds. Yet, beyond these more obvious messages are spiritual treasures hidden like nuggets of gold in the revelation.
