Parable of Being Stuck in a Tree

Brayden got himself stuck in a tree. He wasn't sure how he ended up there and was pretty nervous.

He asked his dad for help and patiently waited for his arrival, not trying to take control of the situation and jump himself, possibly resulting in injury.

Finally, Dad arrived and Brayden was happy that he was no longer alone but felt a sense of trepidation as awareness of his predicament set in.

"Don't panic Brayden, it's ok.  Just sit down and be calm. Trust me."

"Ok dad, I trust you"

"Just reach out for me, I'll catch you. I promise I will not let you fall"

Rescue would come so much sooner if we were all only this trusting...

"There is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no offense exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness." - Boyd. K Packer
