I enjoy watching people eat fruit. In fact, I sometimes give it away when people visit (oranges especially). I never thought of the legal ramifications of my generosity until recently though, when a lawyer friend visited me.

"You shouldn't give this away so easily" he said. "It's possible a stranger would visit you and partake of your generosity, then later sue you for damages."

"What do you suggest I do?" I asked, quite concerned about the possibility of facing a lawsuit.

"I'd recommend you precede your fruit giving by the following statement" he said, before inhaling a large breath and beginning his discourse.

"Know all men by these presents that I hereby give, grant, bargain, sell, release, convey, transfer, and quitclaim all my right, title, interest, benefit, and use whatever in, of and concerning this chattel, otherwise known as an orange or citrus orantium, together with all the appurtenances thereto of skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds, and juice, to have and to hold the said orange together with its skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds, and juice for his own use and behoof, to himself and his heirs in fee simple forever, free from a liens, encumbrances, easements, limitations, restraints, or conditions whatsoever, any and all prior deeds, transfers or other documents whatsoever, not or anywhere made to the contrary notwithstanding, with full power to bite, cut, suck, or otherwise eat the said orange or give away the same, with or without its skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds or juice.'

God is a God of details...

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.-Matthew 10:29

Wow! Not only is God into details, but He cares for you... so much that He calls you His child (If you have a relationship with Jesus)!

For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. -Galatians 3:26

Whatever circumstances may bring, whether sad or even happy, Jesus cares for you all the time, even through the details of life.
