What makes Heaven attractive for us?
It won’t be the pearly gates! It won’t be the streets paved with transparent gold!
These would not satisfy us! If these were all–we would not want to stay in Heaven forever.
I heard the other day, of a little girl whose mother was very sick. While she was sick, one of the neighbors took the child away to stay with her, until the mother would be well again. But instead of getting better–the mother died! They thought it best, that they should not tell the child, nor take her home until the funeral was all over.
