A rich man went to heaven.
He looked around here and there and he found a beautiful house and said to the angel, “Who is the owner of the house?”
“This is the house of the one who was working as servant at your house?”
The rich man was surprised at the angel’s answer.
“How that could be!!” He said, “How could he have such a nice house as this in Heaven?”
The angel answered, “The house in Heaven is built with the materials sent from the earth. And this house was also built with the material he sent from the earth while he was living.”
He walked a long way and he saw another house which looked old and very shabby.
“Who in the world can live in this house?”
The angel answered to the question of the rich man. “This is the house for you.”
The rich man got surprised and shocked. “What? Why is my house so shabby?”
The angel answered, “There is no error or mistake in the kingdom of God. This house was built with the very material you sent from the earth.”
We can store up blessings whenever we give love and sacrifice to others by obeying the words and command of God through our good deeds. For the house to dwell forever what materials am I preparing while living?
Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.
