Today's Scripture: "As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep." Jn 10:15
5820. Everyone wants to go to heaven — someday. JG
The study of relationships is one of my favorite subjects to teach. With four levels of friends (from acquaintance to intimate), we unconsciously relate to everyone we meet. Some people we will never know, but others become a special part of our lives. We nod to acquaintances with no intention to know them better. There are others we want to know. But there is one special person in our life with whom we want to spend all our time. Most believe that person is a marriage partner, but spouses can turn to enemies overnight. No earthly relationship equals what God created for us in Christ. But few people spend any time with Him today thinking they will do it after they die. Such an attitude tells me they won't be in heaven to find out (Mt 7:21-23).
Thank You, God, that our relationship is not only eternal but something we'll enjoy today.
