What is heaven Like? What is Hell Like?

This morning my daughter asked me the question: “What is heaven like, and what is hell like?  Is heaven a fluffy place, and hell a nasty place?”

angel, heaven or hellI thought about this for a moment, and considered all that has been written about heaven and hell. Of heaven as a place full of angels seated on clouds, and of hell as a place of fire. Then I realised the answer  was quite obvious, childlike.

My answer was: heaven is the place where we will spend eternity in the presence of God, a great place.

Hell is where we will spend eternity without God, a nasty place.

She answered, “I’m glad I’m not going to hell, then.”
