Heaven and Hell (27)

Oct 5, 2008 5:39 PM CST Heaven and Hell
A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one
day and said, Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.'
The Lord led the holy man to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the
holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In
the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and
made the holy man's mouth water.

The people sitting around the table were thin and
sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very
long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to
reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful. But because the handle was
longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their
mouths. The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and
suffering.

The Lord said, 'You have seen Hell.'



They went to the next room and opened the door. It was
exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the
large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were
equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well
nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The holy man said, 'I don't
understand. 'It is simple,' said the Lord. 'It requires but one
skill. You see, they have learned to feed each other. The greedy think
only of themselves.'

A very profound message, first time in a long time I felt the need of forwarding a message. This one should be told over and over again.

How are you tonight, I have not seen you for a while?
