Here’s What Happens When You Bring Heaven to Earth

Someone forwarded this video from a life insurance company in Thailand that may illustrate life in the Kingdom of Heaven as well as anything I’ve seen. “Look at the birds of the air,” Jesus might say. “Look at the flowers of the field. Look at this life insurance commercial from Thailand.”

And then tell me what you think:

  1. Neat commercial! If more people did this kind of thing I think we could bring the Kingdom of Heaven a lot closer to Earth!

  2. Jim,

    Thank you for sharing this. For a commercial, it was very moving. Even though I doubt that the creators of this commercial from Thailand intended for this to be the effect, the “Unsung Hero” in the commercial acted in a very “Christlike” manner towards the fellow travelers, both human and non-human, that he came into contact with each day. But then again, maybe the creators of the Thai commercial knew perfectly well what they were doing. Thank you again for sharing this.

  3. It was a very moving video. Mother Teresa once said “Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love. The world has become a different place. It is a shame that this commercial isn’t aired in USA. Thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed it.

  4. Matthew 25:31-46King James Version (KJV)

    31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

    32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

    35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

    36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

    37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

    39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

    40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

    43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

    44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

    45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

    46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

  5. This reminds me of my now departed Dad, who once told my wife and me that its the “little things” that add up to big things that really make the difference and bind us together in love. This is a beautiful picture Jim. Thank you for sharing,
