Bergin and Butler, Repentance, Sacrifice

While we cannot atone for the sins of the human family in the same way the Savior did (Alma 34:10-12), we can become redeemers within our families by sacrificing personal need on behalf of others (John 15:4-5, 10-13; D&C 4; D&C 97:8-9) and by reversing sinful traditions to create a righteous heritage for succeeding generations.
