Alma 24:12 -- On Permanent Stain Removal

"Now, my best beloved brethren, since God hath taken away our stains, and our swords have become bright, then let us stain our swords no more with the blood of our brethren."
Alma 24:12

In reading this today, I was impressed by the fervor of these converted Lamanites, and how incredibly grateful they were for the ability to repent and the gift of forgiveness that they had received.  And maybe that is something that we could all use a little more of in our lives.  We've all sinned, and we all need repentance.  The Lord is incredibly merciful to us as he snatches us out of darkness, saves us from so many self-inflicted consequences, takes away our stains, and offers us hope.

Today, let's be firm in our commitment to refrain from staining our souls with the burdens of sin that we have stained them with in the past.  Let's move forward, thanking God for cleansing us and giving us hope.  Let't take our new stain-free start, and trust God to show us a better way.
