I feel that all of us would say in good times "Oh, yes. I would do anything to support my God..." but is that really true when we are caught in a storm of life? In other words, to what extent does our faith go?
Within this past week, I was told the story of a teenage girl- possibly this is more common than I know- who was offered an audition on the television show, The Voice. Unfortunately, and where the test of faith comes in, is that this girls appointment was on a Saturday, which was the Sabbath to her. (I want to note as I tell this story that I don't necessarily promote either the show, which I know very little about, or the belief that Saturday is the God-ordained Sabbath day...)
But this was a problem: Either the girl had to forsake her beliefs and one of the Commandments, at that, or throw away this amazing opportunity. As the story went, there was a lot of pressure involved from those she knew.... Still, it turned out that after a lot of praying, she chose not to audition.
I'll leave you all with these questions: What would you have done in her shoes? In other cases, to what extent would you go?
