Fun with Legos
Heavenly Father has blessed us greatly with this opportunity to come to this world, to make mistakes and learn from them, to grow and progress, and choose the right path. He has given us the skills we need, and provides the pieces. He also gives us the wonderful gift of agency, the ability to choose. We can choose which pieces we use, and which we push aside. We can decide the order in which we use them, the colors we use, and the sizes we use. We can choose what we make, how we make it, and how big we make it. It's up to us, and we need to always be keeping in mind that what we're making is going to make isn't just some little project. It's not just some fun little thing we make, then go Godzilla on and destroy. It is something that will last us into the eternities. If we're not full happy with it now, we've got a long time to be not happy with it. We should strive to make it exactly what we want it to be, so that we can happily take it into the eternities.
But, let us not forget: Legos are fun! I would love to sit there and spend hours just messing around with them. That's something very important that is often overlooked. Life will have hard times, that is unavoidable, but it can and should be fun as well. So, grab your Legos and get to work!
