Lesson from a Volcano Cake and a Little Brother

I made this cake for my (now four year-old) brother's birthday on Friday. He wanted a volcano which is kinda strange since he's into puppies, slugs, and cars, but he could have whatever cake he wanted and he chose a volcano. This cake didn't turn out very well but at least you can tell what it is! I was debating on whether or not to post the picture but in the end I decided that I should. So here it is:

He was very pleased with the fact that I was going to make his birthday (pronounced: boitday) cake and so, he decided that he needed to direct me in the process. He insisted that he watch the process and observe the result of everything I did. Then he would "instruct" me from, keep in mind, that I have been baking and decorating cakes since before he was born, so you can imagine that his instruction was a bit uncalled for :) Anyway, it got me thinking that we do the exact same thing to God. Here he's had our whole life planned out since before the world was made and yet we have to audacity to question him and/or instruct him what to do with our lives and with the world for that matter. We are often that "3 year old" standing on a chair looking over God's shoulder telling him to do this or do that. Thankfully, though, God is MUCH more patient than I am! :)
So, that's my little "nugget" for today!
