"Will You Look?"
The rich man and Lazarus do the same thing every day. The results are startlingly different and they fill us with fear for what is to come. Hell or Hades or whatever we want to call it is a reality we can't avoid in this parable. So let's not avoid it, but not allow it to hold all the weight. Taking a look (following what Christ calls us to do in this parable) sheds light on how this parable is an invitation to see the world around us — the grace, the hell(s) and God. Will you look? Christ is asking.
