A professor was preparing for class and decided to take an orange with him. He began to talk to a bright young man in front and asked him, “If I squeeze this orange, what will I get?”
He looked at the professor and answered, “Juice, of course!”
The professor said, “Don’t you think I could squeeze apple juice from the orange?”
Laughing, he said “No.”
“What about grapefruit juice?”
He said, “Nope.”
The professor asked again, “What would I get from this orange?”
“Orange juice, of course.”
He repeated his question, “Why? Why would I get orange juice from an orange?”
He answered, “Well, it is an orange, and that is what it has on the inside.”
The professor nodded and said, “That’s right! Let’s think that this is not an orange, but it is you.
Someone puts pressure on you and says something you don’t like.
You get offended. Fear, bitterness, hatred, and anger come out of you. Why did this happen?”
The boy answered, “Because those things are on the inside.”
Now we have to consider what’s inside of you and me, because Matthew 15:18 says,
“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.”
Jesus was squeezed and forgiveness, love, and mercy came out of Him.
He taught us that regardless of people insulting, beating, humiliating, and treating Him worse than a criminal; He just showed love and forgiveness!
Let’s be filled with that love that comes from God, and let’s live each day by His side.
Now the question that we must ask ourselves: “What comes out when I am squeezed?”
