An Analogy from Anziano Burnham

"Speaking of oompa loompas, here is an analogy for you.  

The road to the Kingdom of Heaven/the world is like a trip to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.  
There are exciting things to see, to do, to taste, and to experience.  
However, there are some rules we need to follow if we don't want to end up stuck in the chocolate tubes or float up into the ventilation shafts.  
Some of those flashy candies and little things seem fun at the time, but just like Agustus, 
we may find ourselves slipping into a river and coming out very messy.  
We then miss out on all the other good things we could have done!
Don't be like Agustus.  
However, if you do "slip up", 
remember, Christ is very forgiving if we repent with sincerity.  
Just like WIlly Wonka, 
He also has His servants here on the earth to take care of us, and help us get well again.
My invite for you guys is to enjoy the chocolate factory. 
Follow the rules.
They are there to help us be safe and make us happy. 
And if we do all that is asked of us, 
Our Heavenly Father will reward us with all that He has. 
(I could go on with this analogy, but I'll let you guys figure out the rest.  Here's a hint, river of filth from Lehi's dream = chocolate river)
I love you all!"
