“When I think of Home
I think of place
Where there’s love overflowing
I wish I was home
I wish I was back there
With the thing i’ve been knowing
Wind that makes the tall glass
Bend into leaning
Suddenly, the raindrops that fall
Have a meaning
Sprinklin the scene
Makes it all clean”
(Lyrics from Broadway Musical, The Wiz, by Charlie Smalls).
Our earthly homes are temporary places of refuge. Hopefully, home is where we can be ourselves, we are treated with respect, dignity, and royalty.
Question to ask ourselves, where we our eternal home be? As a child of God, we know that our eternal home is heaven.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going” (John 14: 1-4 NIV).
