The third thing we can do is understand the principle of compensation. The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude.

- Seek for the eternal
- The principle of compensation
- Trust in the Father and the Son
The principle of compensation was new to me. I was really excited to learn something so enlightening and I wanted to share. Elder Wirthlin says:
One of the blessings of the gospel is the knowledge that when the curtain of death signals the end of our mortal lives, life will continue on the other side of the veil. There we will be given new opportunities. Not even death can take from us the eternal blessings promised by a loving Heavenly Father.
Because Heavenly Father is merciful, a principle of compensation prevails.
This makes sense to me, but I have never heard it stated as a "principle" in this way. It is so comforting to know that Heavenly Father loves us so much that he will compensate us for all of our struggles and hardships if we remain faithful. I would love to hear about anyone who has experienced the principle of compensation in their lives.
