A square drawn on the ground with a stone. A smaller one inside it. Another smaller one inside it. From the center points of the squares stretch out several lines up and down, right and left. And then stones are placed on every single crossing. Who will get more stones? With dust on their faces, boys are pondering how to win the game. After several placing, finally, a boy wins, However, on the way home, he throws the stones away and gets empty-handed.
Life in this world strives to gain more and more by using what he has for the whole of his life. We feel happy when we have a lot in our hands but feel distressed to death with few. Meantime, the end of the world is getting nearer. On that day, we will realize what we have in the hands are just stones, for in heaven above there is the glory of God, which we can’t even imagine. What if we let go of the things in our hands? We’ll have a taste of the glory of God. [gnpnews]
Having the glory of God, Her brilliance was like a very costly stone, as a stone of crystal-clear jasper. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
(Revelation 21:11, 23＿NASB)
