A nice homiletical story
There is a story about the world-to-come. There are two banquet halls, one marked “Heaven” and the other marked “Hell.” There are huge banquet tables in both laden with delicious foods and wines. However, in both, people are seated around tables with long utensils strapped to their arms that make it impossible for them to reach their mouths and to eat the food on their plates. The people in the banquet hall marked “Hell” struggle forever with this dilemma. But the people in the hall marked “Heaven” solve the problem. Since they are good, kind, and altruistic people, who have learned how to cooperate with others, they use the long utensils to feed each other. This is how people should act.
