Best and Worst Cities to Live

Rev 21:2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
I read an article this morning by MONEY Magazine listing the best places to live. It included best small towns to live in, best places to find a job, best places for singles to live, etc.

And then I read this "article" in Revelation 21 giving the best city to live in for eternity.

Best City to Live: The New Jerusalem   (Rev. 21:1-7)

Median Income: Astronomical
Property Taxes: None
Weather: Always perfect
Education Opportunities: "but then, I shall know, even as I am known."
Employment Opportunities: "And His servants shall serve Him."
Nightlife: "There is no night there."
Religion: "the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God."
Happiness Index: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
Crime Rate: "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."

Worst City to Live: Fuego Lake, Sheol

Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Weather: Extremely hot, but never humid.
Employment: Panhandling. Everyone is begging for one drop of water.
Nightlife: It is always night there, but it is not much of a life.
Religion: All residents are firm believers and fervent prayer warriors. “Send somebody to tell my brethren not to come here.”
Recreation: Everyone has lake front property. 
Crime Rate: Murderers, abominable, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters and liars are among the neighbors. 

Where will you move when you leave this world?
