Orange analogy

I thought this was a great analogy that could be used as an object lesson about integrity or choice & accountability- our true intentions tend to come out when we have to make the tough choices, so its important to be spiritually prepared at all times. I got this idea from this website here

Orange Analogy 

"We must take responsibility for who we are and what we've become... If you squeeze an orange, you will get orange juice. It doesn't matter who squeezes it, where or when this is done, or what kind of implement is used. If you squeeze an orange, what comes out is orange juice.

The same holds true for each of us. When the pressure is on--regardless of when, where, why, or who is inducing the pressure--all that can come out is what genuinely is inside of us. If we have learned to trust in the Lord, care about others, and sincerely want to do what is right, all that will be evident. If we have not worked at learning those things, our mistrust, selfish desires, or angry feelings will ultimately rule the outcome"
