"Everything counts a little more than we think..."

17 March 2004 Wednesday

would you choose contentment for yourself? would you choose Heaven?

slated in mused at 12:43 pm

assuming: to experience/to be in Heaven is contentment
defining: contement is the absence of restlessness; the absence of striving/yearning.

contentment is peace; complete contentment, in the arms of God, is a feeling of totality..

because God is all, and utterly comforting, and thoroughly satisfying.

then what of loyalty/love/concern/consideration for famly and friends? one’s interests? intentions? concepts and reasons of self-responsibility?

how can any of those exist in Heaven, then?

do we have to be utterly content?

”i’d rather hell with you, than Heaven alone.”

those who choose to sacrifice their passage to heaven, to fulfill their intentions…
... is all they’ve lost is the passage? or have they also chosen to fall out of God’s favor?
is entrance to heaven and God’s favor a hand-in-hand state?
or is Heaven just a place, and God’s love besides. ?

back to the top:
contentment for yourself…
...at disregard for everything else?
