“Follow the steps of repentance (continued from Wednesday)

“In The Miracle of Forgiveness, President Spencer W. Kimball (1895–1985) gives a superb guide to forgiveness through repentance. It has helped many find their way back. He identifies five essential elements of repentance. [These are steps four and five].

“Restitution for sin

“You must restore as far as possible all that which is stolen, damaged, or defiled. Willing restitution is concrete evidence to the Lord that you are committed to do all you can to repent.

“Obedience to all the commandments

“Full obedience brings the complete power of the gospel into your life with strength to focus on the abandonment of specific sins. It includes things you might not initially consider part of repentance, such as attending meetings, paying tithing, giving service, and forgiving others. The Lord said: “He that repents and does the commandments of the Lord shall be forgiven.”” – Finding Forgiveness by Richard G. Scott

How can I do better today than I did yesterday?
