Interesting how God works -- enjoy



A Holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said,
"'Lord, I would like to know what

Heaven and Hell are like.' The Lord agreed and led the holy man to two
doors.

He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle
of the room was a large round table -

in the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled
delicious and made the holy man's mouth water.
The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They
appeared to be famished. They were holding

spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each
found it possible to reach into the pot

of stew and take a spoonful.

But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get
the spoons back into their mouths. The

holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. The Lord
said, 'You have seen Hell.'

They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same
as the first one - there was the large

round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth
water. The people were equipped with

the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished
and plump, laughing and talking. The holy man said, 'I don't
understand.'

It is simple,' said the Lord. 'It requires but one skill. You see they
have learned to feed each other, while the
greedy think only of themselves.'
