One's Conversation and Preparation Indicate the Nature of the Trip

When they told the old servant the master had died and gone to heaven, he replied, "I'm afraid he didn't go there at all." "But why do you say that?" someone asked. "Because I always heard him talking about his trips. Whenever he was going anywhere he would talk about it for a long time, and do a lot of getting ready. But I never heard him talk about going to heaven. I never saw him getting ready to go there. No, I just don't think he is going to heaven at all."
