Life, Legos, and the Gospel

Let's talk a bit about Legos.  As I've stated back in a previous post, I love them.  They're fun little bits of plastic, aren't they?  (Expensive too, at about 10 cents each...)  You can build pretty much anything and everything with them.  Me and my companion, Elder Lindsley, were just yesterday debating whether or not one could build a house out of legos.  We came to the conclusion that if we had enough bricks and enough superglue, there would be nothing wrong with it.

Here's a look at just some of the weird things people have built with Legos:
It kind of makes me really respect God a lot more.  Imagine that you are God.  Your task is to organize a world for your children, and all you have to use are Legos.  You have to make it big enough to hold six billion or more people, to be self sustaining, to give light, life, and generally have a place for all your creations and children to live. 

Sure, you have a lot of legos.  But they're still Legos.

Just think about the good job that God has done.  We are living on a world made of things even smaller than Legos.  We're all made out of those atoms.  God loves us, and has provided a way for us to succeed here on this earth.  He is much more intelligent than we can ever hope to be.  In his love, he has provided a way for all of us to become like him.  Jesus Christ came to earth, and suffered for our sins.  It's called the Atonement, and through Jesus Christ we can become perfect.
