Our cities can be a beautiful thing and a wonderful thing. They represent cooperation and planning. The Bible begins with a garden and ends with a city.
Still, everything we see now will disappear. "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more." (Revelation 21:1)
Are our hopes and dreams all pinned to a city in this current world, or to the one that's to come?
