Primitive camping and sleeping in a tent has been tried by many. It may have all started with a back yard sleep-over with young friends, wilderness scouting adventure or a family vacation. Sleeping in a tent is not for the pampered. Roughing it rules out many of the comforts we are accustomed to; if it rains and there is a leak in your roof it will be a long damp night. The truth is our regular place of residence is a tent.
"We know that our body-the tent we live in here on earth-will be destroyed. But when that happens, God will have a home for us to live in. It will not be the kind of home people build here. It will be a home in heaven that will continue forever. But now we are tired of this body. We want God to give us our heavenly home. It will clothe us and we will not be naked. While we live in this tent, we have burdens and so we complain. I don't mean that we want to remove this tent, but we want to be clothed with our heavenly home. Then this body that dies will be covered with life (2 Corinthians 5:1-4 ERV)." Pull up the stakes. Something better is down the trail.
