A slave whose master had died expressed doubt about whether he had indeed gone to Heaven. When asked why he doubted, he replied, “Whenever the master was going on a trip up north, he talked about it a long time and spent time getting ready. But I never heard him talk about going to Heaven, and I never saw him getting ready.”
The uneducated slave made a very wise observation and expressed it in a way that others around him probably would not have been comfortable articulating quite so honestly. Yet, his simple observation was a true assessment.
If you are really excited about a trip, other people will see it in your life. They will hear you talking about it and preparing for it. Your excitement will be evidenced by the amount of time you give to it.
Are you planning to go the Heaven? If so, what are you doing today to prepare for it? Taking time to prepare for the ultimate trip will redeem the time.
