Heaven and Hell: The Real Difference

A man spoke with the Lord about heaven and hell. The Lord said to the man,
“Come, I will show you hell.” They entered a room where a group of people
sat around a huge pot of stew. Everyone was famished, desperate, and
starving. Each held a spoon that reached the pot, but each spoon had a
handle so much longer than their own arm that it could not be used to get
the stew into their own mouths. The suffering was terrible.
“Come, now I will show you heaven,” the Lord said after a while. They
entered another room, identical to the first-the pot of stew, the group
people, the same long-handled spoons. But there everyone was happy
and well-nourished.
“I don’t understand, ” said the man. “Why are they happy here when they
were miserable in the other room and everything was the same?”
The Lord smiled. “Ah, it is simple,” he said. “Here they have learned to feed the other.”
