John 14:2 – Verse for Saturday

Mary Jane Saunders Daily Verse

“In my father’s house are many mansions. . .” John 14:2
I know more modern translations use the term “ rooms,” but don’t you just love the idea of scads of mansions up in heaven? I particularly love the idea that those who have lived their earthly lives in awful conditions and dire circumstances will be shown to their “mansions” in the next life. A fanciful idea, perhaps, but an uplifting one. In the meantime, we as Christians need to work on sprucing up some of the “rooms” God’s children live in now and do whatever we can to improve the lot of God’s beloved here and around the world.
