Be Free....

“If you are free of serious sin yourself, don’t suffer needlessly the consequences of another’s sin. As a wife, husband, parent, or loved one, you can feel compassion for one who is in the gall of bitterness from sin. Yet you should not take upon yourself a feeling of responsibility for those acts. When you have done what is reasonable to help one you love, lay the burden at the feet of the Savior. He has invited you to do that so that you can be free from pointless worry and depression. As you so act, not only will you find peace but will demonstrate your faith in the power of the Savior to lift the burden of sin from a loved one through his repentance and obedience.”
Richard G. Scott, “To Be Free of Heavy Burdens,” Ensign, Nov 2002
