The power of forgiveness

The following YouTube video, one of the final talks delivered by the apostle, President James E. Faust, is a powerful portrayal of the purifying principle of forgiveness, and a compelling example, of true Christian behavior.

Rusty, this was one of my favorite talks from any General Conference. Doesn’t it just make you want to be a better person, to rise above any pettiness or weakness and be more like this Amish group and more like the Savior. Not only does it make me want to be a better person but it makes it seem a part of this crazy world, that it is attainable now. I appreciate the reminder of President Faust’s message. Keep up all the great posts.

Rusty, wow! Thanks for putting this on your blog. It is just what I needed and probably what a whole bunch of us needed to be reminded of in our lives. Perfect timing too, right before Christmas! Well done as always!
