Marching to Zion
That’s the point Paul is making in 2 Corinthians 5:8. Our home isn’t in this world. Our home is somewhere else. We will never really be at home in this world because we’re constantly saying good-bye to the people we love the most. They leave us, or we leave them. Our children grow up, they leave home, they come back for a visit, and all too soon they leave again.
