When We Have Done All.....

“Could it be that after we have done all we can to reconcile and make peace with those we may have offended that there does come a time when their tyranny will have no power of us? This may sound cruel when we think of a son or daughter-a Laman or Lemuel, Absalom or Cain-but even those we love most dearly, our family members, must not have power to forever darken our joy.  One day we will have God’s love, which is eternal love.  There can be no shadow that would or could darken our joy for eternity, for that would not be just.  What a marvelous gift that concept is.  We can begin to practice it in righteousness in this life.  The Master said, ‘Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’ (John 8:32)”

“The Incomparable Christ, Our Master and Model, Elder Vaughn J. Featherstone, 1995
