Post Script to All Dogs Go To Heaven

May 9, 2010

After a good nights sleep, I woke up thinking about that story of dog heaven. It sounds so wonderful - paints a picture of something that Moriarty & Holmes, like all dogs, would expect paradise to be like. (See here for yesterday's article on all dogs go to Heaven, don't they?)

And then I think of what Paul writes about the growing pains and frustration of creation in Romans.

So we have a picture of Heaven, from a dog's point of view, as prescribed by a human being. And it sounds so great.

And yet we also have a God that is so much better - has so much love - can do so much more - that anything we can even come close to imagining.

So if we think Holmes & Moriarty and all of our animal friends are happy in Heaven - imagine something way better than that - and maybe we can begin to come close to what it's really like for them.

And if God will do that for animals - remember this from Matthew 6:25 -

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ?

Imagine then what it is like for our human friends and family - what it will be like for us. And whatever you imagine - it's not even close to what it will really be like.

It's amazing. God is amazing. He's offered all of this to us - and so much more. All we have to do is accept it.

Have you? Is this what you see in your future? If yes - we'll see you there - along with the 4 guys in the picture. If not - think about it - pray about it - ask Jesus to open the door for you. It's a great future He's prepared for us. Please don't miss it.
