Read Luke 16:19-31
There are close to 60,800 places to live in our nation. Some have interesting names like Acres of Diamond, Florida; Fearnot, Pennsylvania; Happyland, Connecticut.
Some prefer Boring, Maryland; Pitts, Georgia; and Hell, Michigan.
But none are happy in that eternal place of suffering the Bible calls Hell.
One who went there cried, “I am in anguish in these flames.”
And he didn’t want others to go there. He said, “I have five brothers…warn them about this place of torment lest they come here when they die.”
Want to escape it? The Bible says, “Anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Prayer: Father, we come to Thee with our worries seeking confidence and courage; with our problems asking for wisdom and light; with our sorrows looking for comfort and strength; and with our sins praying for forgiveness: in Christ. Amen.
