I was listening to the Tom Joyner morning show one day this week while I was on my way to a Doctor’s appointment. On the show they were talking about Kirk Franklin being worth $8.5 Million and of course as comedians do they began talking about his height and kind of going in hard on him. Sybil Wilkes then says “So yall not going to even try to go to Heaven?” I laughed so hard but that one sentence has stuck with me all week. It really made me think about how we don’t really think about Heaven or anything about the afterlife. Well, most people don’t. If we were in constant thought about where we wanted to end up when our time is up on this earth, we’d do a lot of things differently. The only people who should just be going about life without a conscious thought are those who do not believe in Heaven or Hell but for those of us who do “Are we really trying to go to Heaven?” I know that Jesus died for our sins but does that really give us a pass? Should we just be allowed to laugh and talk about people behind their backs, lie, cheat, steal, and all those things that the Ten Commandments say that we should not do. Just because we believe in the Creator and we may say that we are saved, even though Jesus took that responsibility on his shoulders should we just be allowed to go on like its okay? Shouldn’t we have to do something? I mean, I was always taught that you respect things more if you have to work for it, give some sort of sacrifice or something. Well, as I do most times, I go to a place of deep thought, what do you think?

Love the look of your website. I am learning that how we treat people should be in the direction of how God treats us. He loved us so, that he gave us everything for us to have a better quality of life. Then He tells us to owe no man anything, but love. So I am working on aligning my life and love for others in that way. So Kai, to answer your question, it is my experience that showing love requires much, and is not for the squeamish.
Luv u Kai! Keep up the good work!
