Heaven has no limits.
The Sadducees of old were very learned men. Yet they schemed and plotted elaborately to trap Jesus on points of Jewish law. Look at today's gospel. The Sadducees invent an intricate scenario of a woman who outlives her seven husbands. They want to know which man will be her husband in heaven. Jesus doesn't question the likelihood of the situation. He doesn't wonder if foul play was involved. Jesus simply explains that it is wrong to apply earthly laws and experiences to life in heaven.
Many of us get a bit anxious at the thought of doing something totally new. We want to know what to expect and how to plan. If we are taking a trip to Italy, we'll ask others about their experiences so we can be prepared. We try to formulate the unknown into something with which we are familiar. The Sadducees did the same thing when crafting the scenario for Jesus. They used their earthly experiences to define their view of heaven.
We say we believe in everlasting life ("...His kingdom will have no end..."), and we believe we're going to get there ("...I look forward to...the life of the world to come."). But we must take care not to envision that life as just an extension of our current existence. We cannot apply our earthly limits to heaven. Heaven has no limits. Jesus has been telling us all along that life with Him will be wonderful beyond our imagining. We will live anew in Him forever.
