There once was a man whose life long dream
was to board a cruise ship
and sail the Mediterranean Sea.
He saved every penny until he had enough for his passage.
He dreamed of walking the streets of Rome,
Athens, and Istanbul.
Since money was tight
he brought an extra suitcase filled with cans of beans, boxes of crackers,
and bags of powdered lemonade, and that is what he lived on every day.
He would have loved to take part in the many activities offered on the ship;
he envied those who went to movies, shows,
and cultural presentations,
and oh, how he yearned for only a taste of the amazing
food he saw on the ship.
But the man wanted to spend
so very little money
that he didn't participate in any of these.
He was able to see the cities he had longed to visit, but
for the most part of the journey,
he stayed in his cabin and ate only
his humble food.
On the last day of the cruise, a crew member asked him
which of the farewell parties he would be attending.
It was then
that the man learned,
that not only the farewell party,
but almost everything on board the cruise ship, the food and entertainment,
all the activities, had been included
in the price of the ticket.
Too late, the man realized
that he had been living far
beneath his privileges.
We live beneath our privileges when we fail to partake
of the feast of happiness, peace, and joy that God grants so bountifully.
We can be satisfied with a diminished experience and settle for experiences
far below our privileges,
or we can partake
of an abundant feast
of spiritual opportunity and universal blessings.
As you read the scriptures and listen to the words of the prophets
with all your heart and mind
the Lord will tell you how to live up to your privileges
and we will be able
to do all things
through Christ who strengthens us.
