Matthew 18-19

(Alma 25, 2015)

                Forgiveness is such a powerful (and difficult) doctrine.  It is so easy for us to seek out ‘justice,’ only to realize too late that justice condemns each and every one of us.  No, what we really want isn’t justice but rather justice for others and mercy for us.  This arbitrary and divergent standard is nothing more than selfishness.  We love neither justice nor mercy in this case – we only want what benefits us, nothing more.
