WHY IS EVERYONE SO INTERESTED IN HEAVEN?

A Barna Research study found that 81% of Americans believe in the afterlife. Another 9% said life after death may exist, but they were not certain. Time Magazine did a recent cover story on heaven and the movie "Heaven Is For Real" is doing great at the box office.

The idea of one day going to a better place is such a beautiful thought for many of us. No violence. No racism. No fear. No lies. All the problems of the world are forever remedied and done away with. All the broken things in our life are made new.

Though heaven is a beautiful place it doesn't mean we can't enjoy today. And that today really matters and that we don't have to settle for just grinding out the rest of our days.

I meet people all the time who are so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good. They've checked out and given up. They forget that God calls us to live fully now...even in a place where things are not perfect.

Heaven is going to be amazing...but life here and now can be pretty wonderful too if we let it be.
