In this episode, the kids in Terrene deal with the death of a neighbor, and Lucille’s aunt leaves to be a missionary in a dangerous place.

What is the most amazing place you’ve ever been? Now imagine that place if it was completely perfect in every way. If your favorite place is an amusement park, imagine it on a day with perfect weather and free food and rides and all your friends around you. Pretty great, huh?

The Bible tells us that God has prepared things for us in heaven that are far greater than anything we can even imagine (1 Corinthians 2:9). And we can imagine some pretty great things. No matter how great a place we think of, heaven is better. And because we know this, it’s easier for us to deal with the struggles in our lives (2 Corinthians 4:17). Knowing heaven is waiting for us makes our problems seem small.

Ask your friends and family members what they think will happen after they die. Do they think about it? Do they worry about it? Don’t get in an argument, but use the verses from this devotional to talk to them about heaven and all that God has prepared for us there.
