Imagine, If You Will…
Imagine your dream society... one with no fear, no destruction or violence, no diseases, no death … just peace and harmony, love and compassion, where everyone treats one another respectfully and kindly, and where there is TRUE justice and righteousness. Sounds like some kind of heavenly utopia, doesn’t it? Some days it helps to ponder such fantasies or dreams to help us through the harsh realities of life as we know it, much like taking a dream vacation and just escaping the daily burdens for awhile.
Yet for anyone who believes in life beyond death, such a utopia may not be just a fantasy after all! Here’s your midweek inspiration to ponder …
“What a joy it is to know that the government will be on Christ’s shoulders, and that there will be no end to the increase of His government and peace…
His kingdom will be established with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore.
Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom…a kingdom that cannot be shaken. You will never be voted out; no coup will ever dethrone You. For all eternity, You are the King of kings and Lord of lords.
To You be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen!”
–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise”
“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning,
great is Your faithfulness.’
The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul,
‘Therefore I hope in Him!’”
This one seems like the definition of a true paradise, given the condition of our world and its various governments and societies, especially those infiltrated by terrorist organizations.
It’s hard, in today’s world, to even fathom a government- or a society – that rules fairly, with justice, righteousness, love, and compassion!
So What Are YOUR Thoughts?
What would your dream society look like?
Can you imagine one free from disease, death, and destruction, where kindness and justice reign?
