President Monson Shares the Unexpected Thing He Would Ask Jesus if He Appeared Today

On Facebook, President Monson recently reflected on a question that has been asked of him throughout his service as a prophet and apostle: If Jesus appeared to you today, what questions would you ask of Him?

The sweet, strong, and spiritually attuned servant of the Lord that he is, President Monson gave an unexpected response, but one that shows his incredible humility and faith of our prophet.

From time to time the question has been posed, “If Jesus appeared to you today, what questions would you ask of Him?”
My answer has always been, “I would not utter a word. I would listen to Him.”
Down through the generations of time, the message from Jesus has been the same. To Peter by the shores of beautiful Galilee, He said, “Follow me.” To Philip of old came the call, “Follow me.” To Levi who sat at receipt of customs came the instruction, “Follow me.” And to you and to me, if we but listen, shall come that same beckoning invitation, “Follow me.”
