Two hobos walking along railroad tracks, after being put off a train. One carries a bindle.

Questions to Ponder:

  1. Do you long for heaven? How do you actively seek the kingdom of heaven?
  2. What are the sources of aniexty in your life? How do you these things take away your peace?
  3. What can you do to remind yourself each day that you are made for heaven?
