We’re born with an incredible power, the power of imagination. We’re able to imagine things much better than they can ever actually be. It’s this power that fuels the sparkle in children’s eyes as Christmas approaches, they imagine sugar plums dancing in their heads but the reality is that sugar plums don’t actually dance.

An example of this power put to bad use is the tempting of young men to “martyrdom” by encouraging them to imagine a reward of seventy-two virgins. The reason I put quotes around the word “martyrdom” is because God told me that real martyrdom comes from being killed for your cause but never from killing yourself. He says some things may be worth dying for, but you should always try to find another way.

But back to imagination.

God says that sometimes, imagination is our souls calling home to Heaven.

Reality is getting the phone bill.
