Think of someone you might need to forgive. It could be something recent or long past, serious or trivial, that happened over and over again or only once.
Sometimes, forgiving is straightforward and relatively easy.
Sometimes, forgiving eludes us despite good intentions and persistent effort.
Sometimes, we don’t even want to forgive and can’t imagine why or how we would.
Given just how much some offenses cost us, the Lord’s teaching about forgiveness in Doctrine and Covenants 64:8-10 can feel pretty harsh…
Wait a minute, we may think. Someone did this horrible thing to me, but I’m the bigger sinner if I don’t forgive? How can that be fair!
