Inside Out Quote

I love this quote from Ezra Taft Benson. This was a quote that was in the lesson at my Church today,
Principles of True Repentance.  Repentance is something that is often frowned upon in society. No one likes to admit that they are wrong or are doing something wrong. That is something negative. If something is wrong though, and we keep doing it, that something will continue to bring misery to our lives. The scriptures teach to "repent". This is not a negative command. It is a positive one. Repentance means to change a weakness one has into a strength. It is growth. It is progress. It is changing for the better. Repentance invites us to not sweep the problem under the rug, but rather to face the problem and make the necessary changes to invite peace and happiness into one's life again. The world has different ideas of how to change the world for the better. The Savior knows that to change the world, individuals need to change their hearts based on the laws of happiness, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
