If no one had ever told you about Jesus, what would you think of Heaven?
Well, the Egyptians thought that your body went to the afterworld, they took out the organs, but they kept in the heart. They thought the Egyptian god Osiris weighed the heart. If the heart was heavy, that means the person was bad and a monster would eat it. If the heart was light, the person was good and would live a happy life in the afterworld.
And I would have thought that heaven was a place that I could go to any time and the only place I could talk to all the people around me at once. It would have been a beautiful place, and if no one had told me then I would think the place you stood was on the clouds, and I would be afraid of dying.
But now, I know that Jesus will be with me in heaven, and because of one airplane ride, my mom told me I could NOT jump on clouds. Now I think heaven is a peaceful place, and I still think it is beautiful. And now I’m not afraid of dying for 2 reasons: 1) I have A LOT of questions to ask God. 2) Because I love Peace, and in Heaven, everyone is peaceful. And I would LOVE being with Jesus. (You can know that I love Peace in another part of my blog…the Peacemaker part.)
