"Take off your paper crown and I'll give you my crown of gold." After God said that I had an image of me wearing a colorful tissue paper crown. I took it off and threw it on the ground at Jesus's feet. I didn't realized until I had taken it off just how heavy it was. It hit the sand like a brick. Then He placed a crown of gold on my head. But His crown was so light.
