thumb8On the way out of church tonight I heard someone talking about a friend who died and he said, “God must’ve needed another angel.”

I wondered: Is God so lonely that He needs another “angel”?  Is there a shortage?

Then I thought about people who say that when we die we get our wings, sit on a cloud and play a harp all day long!

Really?  We turn into angels?  And why not a saxophone…that sounds better to me!

Or where did we get this idea that our relatives “in heaven” are watching over us?

Personally I think if that were happening, it would greatly disturb them…and heaven doesn’t seem like a place to be disturbed!

Where is this stuff in the Bible?  Did I miss that class at the seminary?
