Author Wayne Dye, in his book Your Sacred Self, shared a thought-provoking parable about two babies talking about an afterlife beyond their mother's womb.
"Do you believe in life after delivery?" one baby asks.
"There has to be something after delivery," the other replied. "Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later."
The first baby mockingly asks if the other believes in "the mother."
"She is all around us," the second baby says. "We are surrounded by her."
"Well I don't see her, so it is only logical that she doesn't exist," the first baby says. To which the second replied, "Sometimes, when you're in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive her presence, and you can hear her loving voice, calling down from above."
After delivery we can know the truth, our problem then is what's after death. Personally, in life after delivery I believe in God. I am thankful for the rule of Jesus Christ, His offer of forgiveness and in His resurrection. I am thankful for the promise of my own.
A blind boy flying his kite knows the kite is there because he can feel the tug of the string on his finger.
I may not see God or have experienced life beyond the grave but I can feel the tug of eternal life on my soul. And after a weekend with all my children, I am thankful to know that Jesus Christ makes it possible for us to enjoy each other forever and that death doesn't end family.
What do you believe and what are the implications of such belief beyond your death?•
