A Quote by N. Eldon Tanner on forgiveness, friendship, god, love, men, mercy, neighbors, preparation, and repentance

The Lord has said, "I, the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men." (D&C 64:10) We are further admonished to forgive many times, even seventy times seven. We should stop and ask ourselves if we are prepared to ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and trespasses only as we forgive our friends and neighbors. How wonderful it would be if we would all forgive and love our neighbors. Then it would be much easier for us to call upon the Lord to forgive us of any of our wrong doings, and as we repent and bring forth fruits meet for repentance, we can expect God's forgiveness and mercy to be extended in our behalf.
