His Daily Guiding Hand – Elder Brough 

“To teach us all that we must do, Jesus Christ led the way by giving the perfect example that we must try to emulate. He pleads with us with arms outstretched to come, follow Him. And when we fail, which we all do, He reminds us, ‘For behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent.’ 

“What a wonderful gift! Repentance is not a punishment; it is a privilege. It is a privilege that leads and guides us. No wonder the scriptures declare that we should teach nothing save repentance.” – Elder Brough, April 2017 LDS General Conference https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2017/04/his-daily-guiding-hand?lang=eng#p16 

I love this truth! The command to repent of our sins is not a punishment from Heavenly Father, but a glorious privilege and blessing. How grateful I am for it!
