I have heard it said that what we do here on earth prepares us for heaven. While I know it's not a literal job I let my imagination roam as my hands were busy and I thought to myself, "Oh no! I am going to be accumulating loads of stuff that has to be sorted and distributed!" Then I wondered what exactly I would have to sort and distribute since there will be no earthly goods? The most amazing thought came to me...I could accumulate prayers and distribute blessings! Wouldn't that be an amazing job?
My silly ruminations really helped with what was fast becoming a bad attitude about having to be responsible for other people and their possessions. These tasks fell to me not as burdens but as blessings to those I am doing the service for and to those who are receiving the distributed goods.
Life does not always go as we plan, it can leave you crazy busy or even in a tizzy, just remember, accumulate those prayers and distribute those blessings because whatever He has you doing right at this moment is an amazing job!
