"The person who does not read good books has no advantage over the person who cannot read good books."

Joseph Stowell writes of a conversation between God and St. Peter at the gates of heaven. Does God ever say "Check this out! Can you believe we can get someone this accomplished in heaven? Look at all the awards she won on earth! Look what college she attended! What a beautifully decorated house she had!! And she drove a brand new Lexus every year! We are so lucky to have this person in heaven!"
This ridiculous conversation illustrates so beautifully the difference between God's values and the world's values. Let me never forget that difference!!
