Excellent article and so true for many of us! I am going to share this with my daughters....thank you for your insights.
This is a must read for all! Brilliant analogy and makes me smile and cringe at the same time.
I like your raisin analogy. Often my husband and I recount the stagecoach story, where the safest driver is the one who hugs the mountain instead of seeing how close to the edge he can get. Sadly, I think too often people get offended by others or possibly question a point of doctrine, and they forget that God is the author. They may seek out ways to justify their actions, rather than strengthening their faith and seeking proper direction or answers to their concerns.
People do not leave the church because someone hurt their feelings. They leave because they don't have a strong testimony. Someone who is close to the Savior and committed to living the gospel does not stay home from church because of something someone else did. While it is true that we need to fellowship, serve, and show love for another, each of us, hopefully sooner than later, is accountable for our own commitment to the Savior.
Thank you for sharing your insights with such simple clarity. I love your articles! Happy New Year
