day no. 13,413: one public way to deal with private heaven and hells respectively‏

Romans 13:13-14

13 Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy. 14 Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.
Don't try to escape the difficulties of this world by indulging in partying and drunkenness.
Don't try to create a little private heaven on earth by turning entirely to inward pleasure-seeking.
Don't try to ruin what good others experience by arguing and judging and being jealous of them and their blessings.
Instead, walk in the presence of Jesus. If it helps, pretend that Jesus is everywhere at all times and that He is with you in whatever you do.  Oh wait! You don't have to pretend. He IS everywhere at all times and you are NEVER outside His presence.
