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?
