Alma 28:13

"And thus we see how great the inequality of man is because of sin and transgression, and the power of the devil, which comes by the cunning plans which he hath devised to ensnare the hearts of men."
Alma 28:13

This is interesting... usually when I think of inequality it seems like a societal issue, not something that people choose for themselves.  In the verses just preceding this, there was a war... and a lot of people are dead.  And everyone is mourning for someone they lost... but mourning in different ways.  Some of the are devastated, and some are more hopeful, depending on how their loved ones lived their lives, and what kind of judgement they can look forward to.  And in that context, we absolutely choose our own inequality.  We make ourselves unequal by the way that we live our lives.  Even though God offers everyone the same chance at heaven, many of us choose not to go there by our actions.  So much is dependent on this brief life... we choose a lot of what we'll be and enjoy for eternity.  Today, let's pay attention, and choose a little bit more wisely. :)
