I am not sure exactly what Heaven will be like. But I do know that when we die and if comes the time for God to judge us, He will not ask, 'How many good things have you done in your life?' Rather He will ask, 'How much love did you put into what you did?'

Jesus said love one another. He didn't say love the whole world.
Speak low, if you speak love.
