The gift of repentance

I ran across this old journal entry today:

I think it is interesting that when Peter told the other disciples about his vision instructing him to take the Gospel to all, the disciples exclaimed, "Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance." (Acts 11:18) Funny, they didn't say salvation, but repentance. That is the real blessing - to change, to become more like Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and not just to escape punishment for our wrongs.
