“Do not judge past behavior with present knowledge.....”

“There is something in us, at least in too many of us, that particularly fails to forgive and forget earlier mistakes in life—either mistakes we ourselves have made or the mistakes of others. That is not good. It is not Christian. It stands in terrible opposition to the grandeur and majesty of the Atonement of Christ. To be tied to earlier mistakes—our own or other people’s—is the worst kind of wallowing in the past from which we are called to cease and desist.”
Jeffrey R. Holland, BYU Devotional, January 13, 2009

Remember—“Do not judge past behavior with present knowledge.”
