The Bishop of the ward told a story this Sunday, and I really liked it. The story goes that a mom and her little kid are going down the street, when they see a man selling strawberries. The kid is really excited and is very insistent to his mom that she should buy some, but the mom doesn't have any money. The strawberry salesman hears this and says that he will give to the kid as many strawberries as he wants. The mom is embarrassed, but the salesman insists. The kid asks if it really is as many strawberries as he wants, and the salesman says yes that the kids can grab as many as he wants. So the kid drops his toys and grabs the edge of his shirt and holds it out and tells the salesman to fill up his shirt with strawberries. The salesman laughs and fills up the shirt extended outwards with strawberries and goes on his way. The mom asked her kid why on earth he told the strawberry salesman to fill his shirt with strawberries. The kid answered that His hands are bigger than his own hands. The bishop explained that the Lord's hands are willing to give us all the blessings that they can, and that the Lord's hands are bigger than ours. If we are obedient, the Lord will pour out blessings on us. This blessings will be more abundant than what we can gain by ourselves. I know that the Lord wants to bless us, but we need to follow His commandments and give heed to His word.
I love y'all!
