Heaven and Hell: What is it like?

Pretty Deep.............Think About It!

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

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, while the greedy think only of themselves."

Only 7% of the people who read this will share it with others. 93% of
people won't forward this!
