The two girls were arguing about the matter, that is whose house is bigger than the other’s, describing their house.
One girl bragged, “My house is bigger than yours. There are the bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, a bathroom, a storehouse and even a garage in my house.”
The other girl became angry and acted out of jealousy. “That is not a big deal. My house is amazing, which has a basement, a study and an attic. You don’t have, right?”, she showed off.
“It is nothing! Mine has a hall way.” They started to exaggerate in order not to look surprised.
They raised their voice to overpower each other.
“My house even has a kitchen garden.”
The other girl didn’t draw back.
“Mine has even a swimming pool.”
At that moment, a girl passed them by without paying attention to their argument. The two girls grabbed her and ask for her opinion to judge whose house is bigger than the other’s. But it didn’t take a time to answer them in quick response.
“The house here is not as much important as the heavenly one.”, she answered.
The two girls were startled and got curious about her.
“Then which rooms do you have in your house? How much is it big?”
The girl explained to them with a bright smile on her face.
“I have the heavenly house. My mom told me that I don’t have to envy the mansion or the castle in this world. Because my God is preparing the great house in heaven, which might be able to be the gigantic planets or the enormous stars.
I will decorate it with the flowers, furniture and ornaments and even I can create my own house with every beautiful stuffs. Can you have the stars as your houses?”
“Wow! So then…”
The two girls became speechless, not to know what they were going to say.
John 14:2~3 “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
Hebrews 11:16 “Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.”
