Imagine a Caribbean resort with beautiful palm trees and other tropical vegetation. A turquoise blue ocean with a state-of-the-art hotel for guests. Sounds like the perfect paradise, doesn’t it? We have seen tv and magazine pictures displaying such vacations and all we say is, “I wish I was there.”
My point of consideration is we all know how beautiful a tropical island is; but heaven is even better. It is more beautiful than a tropical island;10 times, 1000 times better.
The things we see in this life are inferior to what awaits the righteous in the next life. I say, give up on making this life your main goal. Dream big, obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, so you can be in a place for eternity that is more beautiful than any tropical island.
