Jus’ Passin’ Thru…

In the 1800s, an American tourist stopped by the home of Polish rabbi Chofetz Chaim.

 Polish Rabbi

The tourist was surprised to find a simple dwelling place filled only with books, a table, and a bench.

The tourist asked the rabbi, “Where is all your furniture?” 

The rabbi replied, “Where is yours?”

The puzzled American said, “Mine? But I’m only a visitor here. I’m only passing through.”

To which the wise Chaim replied, “And I am simply a visitor here on this earth. I’m only passing through.”

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives… –2 Peter 3:11
