Colton Burpo was hospitalized and Todd and Sonja spent a lot of time at the hospital. While there, they discovered people turn to drugs or alcohol to receive peace and get rid of the suffering for a little bit. But there is no suffering in heaven and that we need to realize we are not to heaven yet and that there is hard times and suffering on Earth.
Todd realizes that maybe having Colton in the hospital was a miracle from heaven. God was teaching Todd a lesson.
When Colton was in heaven he saw Pop who was Todd's grandpa. Colton said "has really big wings." As Colton explains this it sounds like a "God-cident."
Reading the bible is like solving a jigsaw puzzle. But Colton provides those "A-ha!" moments and makes scripture make sense. Don'y push the puzzle pieces of scripture push you to the side. God helps you through everything if you decide to listen to what he tells you.
Parents don't yell at their children as they begin to walk, and it's the same with God. He will praise us as we walk with him but he won't scold us when we fall down and stop following him. We need to get up again and follow him and have a good perspective on him. You maybe the the closest someone gets to hearing the word of God so speak wisely.
Everyone has made mistakes, even your pastor. God forgives whatever sins you have made and even the people you dislike. Some people may seem perfect but God knows they are in fact not, everyone makes mistakes and god forgives them, big or small.
