    “Surely the reason Christ said, ‘Father, forgive them,’ was because even in that terrible hour He knew that this was the message He had come through all eternity to deliver.”
    —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

The Other Part of Forgiveness

In this month’s Ensign you’ll find a short account of how one woman found the key to forgiving those who had hurt her. In “The Other Part of Forgiveness,” the author, Becky Dastrup, tells how she received the answer she sought after speaking to a Christian friend of another faith about her struggle to forgive. Her friend reminded her of one of the Savior’s teachings on this subject, which led her to the peace she desired.

The author then notes, “I am grateful to have had this gospel-centered conversation with my friend of a different faith. It increased my desire to openly speak about my beliefs so that I could have more enlightening experiences like this one.”

We should all remember that it is possible for us to receive this kind of enlightenment if we will open up to those who sincerely love and strive to follow Jesus Christ, no matter what denomination they belong to. This sort of sharing goes both ways.
