    The Freedom of Forgiveness

    November 13, 2019


    Forgiveness is more than just a commandment; it’s a gift that helps us to heal. Yes, forgiveness can be meaningful to its recipient. But it is absolutely necessary for its giver. We do not have to be victims to those who have hurt us. As Elder Kevin R. Duncan explained, we can give up our burdens of “hate, bitterness, pain, resentment, or even revenge. We can forgive, and we can be free!”
