There are many versions of a parable which consists of a conversation between twins in the mother’s womb. One questions whether or not there is life after birth, he also questions whether or not there is such a thing as a mom because he has never seen her.
I like this version and it is offered for use by the writer for free distribution so… here
Even God may have a bit of trouble describing heaven for us in language we can understand, since the Bible is not very specific. Or maybe that is a part of our faith walk and he doesn’t want us to try to wrap our minds around his surprise for his bride/saints. I Corinthians 2:9 “…No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”
Yesterday I asked you to mull over your answer to whether heaven seems boring. What did you decide? I can almost guarantee those who are Christians, came up with something like this, “I don’t know what Heaven will be, but I sure don’t think it will be boring.” They make that statement based on their walk with Jesus here on earth. He is not boring. At least not for those who will take a risk with him.\
Venturing my opinion on some matters.
1. I do not think we will all automatically be filled with all knowledge and be perfected in our ability to do things. Therefore, I look forward to all the things there will be to learn from exploring the galaxies to learning to play the violin.
2. Although I know there will be no need for nurses, emergency personnel, policemen, soldiers, and other caregivers, I do believe there will be need for people who have been honed in their compassion and care giving on earth – “people” people. Perhaps these people will be the “hospitality” people in heaven. Maybe one of them will act as my guide to show me where my mom lives.
3. Will the millions of babies who die on earth still be babies in heaven? If so, maybe I can be a teacher for them. And I believe we will learn arts and sciences. Who will teach me? Perhaps Mozart and Galileo; perhaps Margie and Joe. (Who are they? I don’t know.)
4. There will be leaders (Matthew 25:23 His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.)
5. I think we are safe to expect work and play in zoology and botany, since that was the first work required from Adam even in the midst of Eden.
When we get to Heaven, I might roar with laughter as I pull this blog from my memory museum. There might not be one word of fulfillment in my assumptions about Heaven! After all, no mind can conceive… I’m just a baby in God’s womb. He is all around me and I just barely know him.
CONCLUSION: ‘TIS A SHAME SO MANY EQUATE HOLINESS WITH BOREDOM!
