"If there is only a day left then there really is little value in feeding the hungry, better to try to win them to the truth"
If you had food to give and it was the last day wouldn't
you give? Is not that the Truth? Is not that what Christ
I read a short story a while back I'll try my best to relate it.
It was about a small european town set in the late 1800's.
They KNEW when the last day of the world would be.
The whole town was sold on it . As the date got closer
and closer things began to change. Into the last year they
turned and everybody started to say hello to each other,
hold doors open, no you go first, they shared things with
the less fortune it towns people. Hey they would not be in
need of everthing they had. The end was coming and they
decided to share all with all of what need would it be to
them the end was coming. Closer and closer the DAY
came people were singing and dancing enjoing each
day as it came and as it went. People started learning
things that they always put off before even knowing
they would not have enough time to learn the skill
completly. Yes life was good it was all loving all giving
all sharing-they were in Gods image trully.
The day came they all gathered at the top of the hill
made a circle held the hand of the one next to them
and very peace fully looked heavenly.
Morning turned to afternoon then to dusk and then night
came. They all waited with great confidence and proudly
too for all the immense love that was shown and given to
and by all. The sun came up the next day. Thats where
the story ends. I ask two questions here.
How did the towns people live out the rest of there lives?
Maybe to answer that, this question is better.
What in reality-reality-reality-actually changed?
