A Backpack from Heaven

A Backpack from Heaven


Monty set out to hike to the top of a mountain. He was doing okay, but his heavy backpack was dragging him down. Even so, Monty reached the top. And there, he met an angel.


The angel said, “Let’s trade your earthly backpack for this heavenly one.”


Monty agreed and started to head down the mountain. But the heavenly backpack kept pulling him up. Monty barely dragged it down the mountain. He opened the pack and saw that it was empty!


Then he heard the voice of the angel, “You can’t easily see heavenly things. But don’t worry. They will find their own place. Thank you for dragging the backpack down, Monty.”


Victor Krotov
