Will You Be Shocked One Day?

 I was shocked, confused, bewildered 
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor. 

 
But it was the folks in Heaven 
who made me sputter and gasp-- 
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
 the alcoholics and the trash. 

There stood the kid from seventh grade 
Who swiped my lunch money twice. 
Next to him was my old neighbor 
Who never said anything nice. 
Bob, who I always thought 
was rotting away in hell, 
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine, 
looking incredibly well.
 


I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take. 
How'd all these sinners get up here?
God must've made a mistake. 

'And why is everyone so quiet, 
So somber - give me a clue.'
 

'Hush, child,' He said,

'they're all in shock. 
No one thought they'd be seeing you.'
 
JUDGE NOT!! 

Remember... Just going to church doesn't make you a 
Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.
Every saint has a PAST . . . Every sinner has a FUTURE!
But Life without God is like an unsharpened pencial. . .
It has no point!
 
-- this poem, perhaps entitled "The Best Poem In the World" was shared with me by a good friend and neighbor.  In light of all that is going on -- things we hear of and sometimes things we say about politicians, church leaders, and others.  I thought maybe this is exactly what we need to hear today.  Thank you R.E.
