A Powerful Question

  Can you imagine your children coming into the living room at night seeing father buried in the evening paper, and going over to sit on the arm of his father's chair? Can you imagine him putting his arm around his father's neck and saying, "Dad, I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. I want to thank you for my clothes, for my food, for my bicycle, and for everything. But Dad, what have you ever done to help me get to heaven? What could you say if your son asked you that? What would your answer be to your daughters?
