“The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.” Zechariah 8:5 (NIV)
Our society is increasingly favoring laws that value death and downplay life, but in our eternal home we will have none of it! Life will be celebrated. When you see children out in public with no worry of harm, you’ll see life and know there is safety. Heaven will be like that. You’ll see it as the lamb and lion tussle together without fear and in the presence of children freely playing.
Life in our eternal home will be unlike our society today with its sinful consequences. There will be no fear of evil disrupting our days when we are in Heaven because every inhabitant will be in harmony with the righteousness of the Lord.
Let’s pray today that the children in our families will follow Jesus and join with us in life.
