This brings to mind the old commercial that had the punch line: "That's a some spicy MEAT-A-BALL" The sign says it the worlds largest meatball and maybe it is. Certainly, it would take many, many people to eat this one. I was thinking about food a lot today, as last night I took my wife out for pizza and we ordered a large. Funny thing is... we each only could eat a couple of pieces. To some, this may sound completely normal, but... I used to be able to eat four or five (and on a good day, more). So, this little episode made me think of a passage from the book of Ecclesiastes.
Ecclesiastes 11:8 (WEB)
8) Yes, if a man lives many years, let him rejoice in them all; but let him remember the days of darkness, for they shall be many. All that comes is vanity.
Things change, but I will remember the past fondly and look forward to the future with expectation. Although "old age" may be just around the corner (perhaps closer that makes me feel comfortable), still the vanity of this life will pass into the reality of a spiritual existence that will last forever. That prize is worth more than a thousand Earthly ones. Which makes me wonder.... I wonder how big the meatballs will be in heaven?
