Aim at heaven, and you will get earth thrown in; aim at earth, and you will get neither. Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind. -C. S. Lewis 1898-1963, British Academic, Writer, Christian Apologist- Do you agree with C.S. Lewis? Why? I agree with him..This world is never so kind to me, but Heaven will be...I believe it..

heaven is like a carrot hanging from a pole above the horse, the pole is fixed on the horse.. the horse moves forward to get the carrot, but the carrot moves forward along with the horse, so near yet so far... we can do all the good things, but even then there are a few more good things to be done, call it a vicious cycle. you never reach the target. but by trying to eat the carrot the horse is doing what it was meant to do. the same way by trying to reach heaven we are doing what we are supposed to do. do good. because at the end of the journey the horse will get the carrot. i dont know if we would reach heaven, but definitly at the on your deathbed, you would be proud that you did good things, and made a difference to someone's life. isnt that what matters?

Thanks for the explanation. I really appreciate your opinion. If we believe in Jesus, we are already but not yet in Heaven. It means, there is a guarantee that we will be in Heaven. Remember, He is the only way..John 14:6.

I like the quote. C.S. Lewis is great. I agree with him. Though I love this world, I know heaven is better.

Yup..That's a great quote from C.S. Lewis.. Thanks for sharing it. I really appreciate it. I think we must love heaven more than this world and we could still love this world for God's sake..

earth is all that I know so I would have to say earth is reality and heaven is the hope

Thanks for the opinion. I really appreciate it. Though I have a different opinion. I don't think that earth is so kind to us, if we really know about the 'hope' of heaven and know what will really happen there. It must be great and wonderful...
