A Lesson From God

One day a man had a conversation with God and said: “Dear God, I would like to know what heaven and hell are like?” God led the man to two doors, he opened the first one and let the man look inside. In the room there was a large round table and in the middle of the table was a large pot of stew that smelled delicious. However, the people around the table were thin and sickly, and they seemed to be very hungry. Then the man noticed they had very long spoons tied to their hands, it was possible for everyone to reach out and get the food from the pan, but because the spoons were longer than their arms, they could not bring the spoons to their mouths.
The man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.
God said, “Now you have seen hell.” and they went to the next room. God opened the door and the room was exactly the same as the first one, there was also a large round table in the middle of the room containing a large pot of stew. The people had exactly the same long spoons attached to their arms, but these people were well nourished and healthy. They had fun and were laughing and talking with each other.
The man said, “I do not get it, I do not get it!”
God said: “It’s pretty simple, you only need to know one thing. You see, they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy people only think of themselves.”
