Hey, what's up? Good to see you again my friend. Come to think of it were we ever really friends at all? As I remember it you really only dealt with me at times of inconvenience, boastfully preaching of an eternity that you claimed I could not ever hope to perceive.
You would brag about a crown of jewels that one-day you would receive and of a heavenly celebration that someone like me could not even conceive. And as for the crown, you said you wouldn't wear it but would cast in praise it at the feet of the Lord. "Yeah right" was my reply, as I watched the way you lived holding tightly to your possessions to no need would you give.
Oh yeah, you expected others to live up to standards that you secretly did not observe and for everybodyís problems you always had a word.
Now at life's end to your amazement we meet again. I enjoyed the look of astonishment that came over your face, I'm quit certain you would have never imagined you and I would be spending eternity in the same place.
With much bewilderment you approached me, I sensed your apprehension and disbelief as we embraced. Then you said somewhat braggingly "its wonderful to see that you finally experienced God's grace." Then shrugging your shoulders as if proud to know that your life had not gone to waste you turned away quickly, wipe the sweat from your brow and ignorantly ask, "Heaven sure is hot, huh?"
