When it comes to heaven, don’t worry, we won't idle away strolling down streets of gold.

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. When it comes to heaven, don’t worry, we won't idle away strolling down streets of gold. We’ll have jobs to do. We’re going to rule in God's kingdom; He’ll give us exciting work we'll never grow tired of. And if we've been faithful in earthly service, our service in heaven will increase. I love the words of Jesus in Luke chapter 19, "Well done, my good servant! … Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities." Those who are faithful in a few minor things here on earth will be put in charge of multitudinous things in heaven. Were you faithful in your marriage or a mission... even only in a small way? God's got big things in store for you. Success isn't the key ... faithfulness is. The more faithful you are in this life, the more wonderful service you will be given in the life to come. Heaven’s going to be one happy, busy place!
