My son loves Legos. Even at 11, you will sometimes find him in his room putting together those little pieces to create something unique. He has millions of tiny pieces that are all the shades of a rainbow. They are different shapes, serve different purposes and make whatever piece he is building totally and completely his.
Take a look at these verses:
Ephesians 2:19-22 – “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”
I know this may sound demeaning and/or trivial, but are we not like Legos? Look at all the shades of people around you. Look at the wide variety of talents and abilities that each person has. Each person that has ever been born has the opportunity to become one with Christ. We all have to opportunity to be a part of this “building”. How cool is that! I don’t mind being a Lego!
Today, princess, appreciate the differences in those around you. Treasure their unique skin color and language and customs and talents. God did not create us all the same. He likes variety as much as we do. Encourage someone to seek out Jesus and become part of the amazing creation He is building in the hearts of those who choose to follow Him.
