Weekend Story- Hell Or Heaven ?
September 25, 2022
A Rabbi once told his congregation a story about his tour to the heavens.
His first stop on tour was Hell, and it wasn’t pleasant at all. Even though the tables were laden with delicious food, everyone looked pale and hungry. Why? Because they had long wooden spoons strapped around their arms, making it impossible for them to bend their hands to eat.
The Rabbi’s next stop was Heaven, and the situation there was very different. Just like in Hell, people were sitting around the tables with long wooden spoons strapped around their arms, but they looked contented and happy.
He could not understand the difference until he closely observed what was happening on the tables. Everyone was using their strapped arms, not to feed themselves, but to feed each other !!
Hell or Heaven, it’s all down to how people treat one another.
