Prior- Next Chapter
A church youth director spoke to a grade school age child of Jesus dying on the cross and being raised again. The child responded, "Is that like a zombie or something"? Our learning may be similar to that of a child when it comes to things of heaven. An example is in Matthew 17:1-8 when Moses and Elijah came from heaven to speak with Jesus. One of the disciples volunteered to meet the needs of their guests in an earthly way; however, it was naive as their guests exist from a completely different perspective. It turned out the disciples' role was simply to listen and learn a spiritual lesson.
In later pages, certain concepts require only a second or two to read. To absorb a spiritual lesson into one's life, however, requires reflection: "What direction has my life or those around me taken because I lack this quality?" Comprehending the need is a prerequisite in seeking His guidance to change.
