Pictures With A Message



Are there Snails in Heaven?

This cartoon was inspired after reading a daily devotional called Our Daily Bread and told the story of the crane and the swan - I have put in my own words how the story goes -

One day a crane wading in the water was looking for snails to eat, eventually a swan glided down and landed close by, the crane who had never seen a swan before was intrigued by this elegant bird and enquired "What are you and where do you come from? "I am a swan" came the reply "and I come from heaven" the swan went on to explain what heaven was like - about the beautiful city of gold and the pearly gates, but the crane interrupted, and asked "Are there snails in heaven?" "No" said the swan "there are no snails" the crane who was not impressed, replied "Well, I don't think I want go there - I like eating snails!"

It's a funny story but some people are like the crane - when they hear the the good news of Jesus Christ, unless it ties in with earthly desires and pleasures - their not interested, but the things of this world will pass away shortly, it's pleasures and pastimes, and we need fix our eyes upon Jesus, looking forward to spending Eternity with Him, and living lives now which please God - is this the ultimate desire in our life? or are the things of this world hindering us?

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. - 1 John 2:15
