1 Corinthians 2:9

1 Corinthians 2:9
but just as it is written, "THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM."

Heaven!  There are things we can't even fathom about heaven.  We all have an idea of what heaven is.  What it looks like, smells like, sounds like, feels like.  We talk about what we will finally be able to do, like golf for a person who has been restricted by injury, or eat, for those of us who worry about calories.  We talk about who we will see again, those who have passed before us.  And we know, not assume, but KNOW that heaven will be everything and anything we could ever imagine it to be.

But now ponder this.....there are things about heaven, or heaven itself, that we can't even begin to imagine, fathom, or anticipate.  We have not experienced it, we can't talk to anyone who has experienced it, and it is an experience beyond our earthly comprehension.  Everything we do, in theory, is in an effort to get there.  Imagine what the world would be like if we were consumed with not only making sure we are behaving in a manner that God will welcome us into heaven, but if we also helped our neighbor get there as well!

Thanks for reading!
