Consider that you are invited to a friend’s house for breakfast. On the table you see a large pitcher of freshly squeezed orange juice from which your host fills his glass. But he offers you none. Finally, you ask, “Could I have a glass of orange juice?”
He replies, “Oh, I am sorry. I was afraid you might not like orange juice, and I didn’t want to offend you by offering you something you didn’t desire.”
Now, that sounds absurd, but it is not too different from the way we hesitate to offer up something far sweeter than orange juice. I have often worried how I would answer some friend about my hesitancy when I meet him beyond the veil.
It is so true! We are all guilty of this. But I dont want to meet someone in the next life who tells me. Why didnt you ask me. I was waiting for the truth and you were scared to ask. THat is how we are with what he says , is something far sweeter then orange juice. ITs the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Which helps bind families in unity and faith. It is something so precious and sweet for those who are living it full that we should all have the charity and love for other people to ask. But remember God wont force anyone to go to heaven so we must always respect the agency of the other person but if we truly do love them we should be INVITING them to follow Christ. As Lds members we have so much more knowlege that we have the responsibility to share. So I hope everyone this week can find someone to share there sweet Orange Juice with. Because the blessings of missionary work go far beyond helping people through a trial but we can help people live with there families for eternity with the sealng keys that have been given in this dispensation.
I learned this and SOO much more for Daladier. As I watched him progress basically on his own to the waters of baptisms. All I had to do was ask.
