I dislike Fruity Pebbles more than any other cereal not because they have the worst flavor, but rather because they don’t live up to their full potential. I want them to be as delicious as their fruit-flavored cereal competitors. But they just aren’t. Instead, they are less tasty and much more difficult to clean up. It quickly dawned on me that a gospel principle lay buried in that conversation and my son was about to hear it.
