“The twelve gates were made of pearls–each gate from a single pearl! And the main street was pure gold, as clear as glass.” ~ Revelation 21:21
Ah, summertime. Sunshine, blue skies, and…orange cones as far as the eye can see.
The town I live in does an excellent job of maintaining the streets. I’m not sure I’ve ever lived in a place where the upkeep was anywhere near what it is here. It’s incredible. But driving on pristine roads has a price – endless construction.
So as I was driving through yet another construction zone today, I had a bit of a chuckle when I thought to myself, “No wonder God picked gold for the streets – I’m sure the upkeep on them is very minimal!”
Our roads here on earth are generally made of asphalt – and they sure don’t last long. Crumbling and cracking is common, which is why roads have to constantly be repaved. But in a small little detail like the streets in heaven, we can see God doesn’t let any detail slip by – He makes sure everything in heaven is the very best.
Imagine how grand it will be – no orange cones anywhere!
