When I was little about 3 or 4 years old, I used to hate Durian. I did not know why I hated it, but I just did. Everytime my Dad would tell me to eat I would refuse. He, then, would scold me for it.

One day, he got very mad. I did not want to eat that expensive fruit but he kept arguing that it tastes great and I am stupid for not liking it. He forced and forced and forced me to eat and I cried, refused, refused, and refused to eat until he opened my mouth and licked me a little of that heavenly fruit.

That moment changed me.

It tastes great. That day I ate the whole fruit. And durian began to be my favorite fruit.

Last night when I was out with GUPta Youth, I shared this story and I was inspired. It can be similar to the presence of God.

Why don't we like the presence of God?

Could the presence of God be your "durian"?

If it is. I really encourage you to go try. I am 100% sure it is the best fruit in the world.

If durian is a love-hate fruit, the presence of God is a love-love fruit. You can't resist his love when you are in. And you won't regret it anyway. It is life-changing.
