The theme of the most recent General Conference seemed to be forgiveness. The message from our Heavenly Father is simple forgive as I have forgiven you. For some of us, our mortal experience may require us to forgive many times and as long as we continue to forgive we are following His counsel. When we allow grudges to linger and fail to extend forgiveness to those who have trespassed against us we have allowed Satan to win.
After all, none of us will experience what our Savior did from his friends, he was sold for several pieces of silver, his closest Apostle denied knowledge of Jesus, and still He forgave both of them. I know I need my Savior's forgiveness every single day, and on that note I should forgive those who have trespassed against me. Let us always follow his example.
