The man that sent me this article was a person that not long ago I found to be one that was in danger
of not being saved. It was a bit discouraging that I would not get any response from him to most of my messages.
Just yesterday I received the article below from him and I feel rather hopeful now. He needs prayers as does
his family. I believe that a short one sentence from the heart to Our Lord, in this case, would be fine as there
are so many others we should remember in our prayers as well. Thank you dear Doves.
It appears that the article -- "No one can read this and remain the same . . " posted by Donna Cothran recently, that I sent to him did cause him to think.
This is so true.
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 table. 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
The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and
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.'
When Jesus died on the cross, HE was thinking of you. Its estimated
93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward
this with the title '7%'. I'm in the 7%.
Remember that I will always share my spoon with you.
