Hell & Heaven

There once was a man who wanted to see what Hell was like. He was taken into the ‘netherworlds’ and he entered a room. There was a long table with benches on either side of the table. On the table were bowls of hot soup. The people sitting on the benches at the table were crying and wailing! Each one of them had a spoon in his hands. A spoon with a very, very long handle. So long was the spoon that although they couldn’t reach into the bowl of soup they couldn’t get the soup to their mouths. ‘So sad’, he thought.

Then he asked to see Heaven. He was escorted up to Heaven and, once again, he entered a room…It was the same kind of room that he had seen in Hell. Long table, benches, bowls of soup and the same long spoons…the difference was that everyone was laughing and talking to each other, smiling, happy!

What he observed told him everything. They had the same long spoons in their hand and were putting them into the soup bowls. The difference?…THEY HAD LEARNED TO FEED EACH OTHER!
