The Dallas Cowboys, Disappointment & Heaven


Wow, what a weekend. Christmas was great, but the Dallas Cowboy game was a bitter pill to swallow. I’m still pretty much in shock. As most of you know, our family attended the game (if you want to call it that) in person. I can’t get over the fact that I spent months stashing back money to save enough to take my family to the Dallas Cowboys game. We also spent weeks talking about how great it was going to be to watch a “live” Cowboys football game. We told everyone we’d be there. For Christmas we all got new “Cowboys” gear to wear to the game. And as luck would have it, all our excitement went right down the drain when the Philadelphia Eagles smacked around our Dallas Cowboys during all four quarters. Ouch. At the end of the game I sat there in the stands feeling so cheated. All that saving and all that excitement seemed to be for nothing. I wanted to ask Jerry Jones for a $300 refund. It was just so frustrating to be so excited about the game for so long, just to be let down with a mighty crash.

It’s a good thing heaven isn’t going to be like that. There will be no let downs when we get there. There will be no disappointments. No one will get to heaven and feel cheated. No one will say, “I’m not sure it was worth it.” And no one, I mean no one will be asking for their money back. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 6:19-21 what I should have remembered this weekend, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

So, I’ll keep working, I’ll keep serving and I’ll keep loving, because one day heaven will all be worth it.

    Good post. Sorry the Cowboys were disappointing. Much like my Bengals.

    It’s nice to know that our loftiest thoughts of heaven are necessarily inferior to the reality! (And that lasting joy doesn’t cost $300! Good thing b/c I wouldn’t have much!)
