Parable of the Fireflies
“Bring a loaf of bread to church.”
“Return those library books today, even though they’re due next week.”
“Send that email to that person as well.”
I couldn’t know that bread would be needed for Sacrament that day, or that I would become ill next week, or that a particular person could answer my email quicker than the other recipients.
All too often, though, I bat such promptings away as if they are annoying bugs. The result is inevitably a missed opportunity or inconvenience.
When this happens, I plead with the Lord to keep sending small promptings until I start listening. Fortunately, He is kind enough to do it.
