Theology and Marshmallows

After watching this I was thinking about how this may resemble Christanity in some people's minds. In that we are to hold out for the really good stuff late (the afterlife). At the sametime I was very impressed with the way the kids were able to delay their gratification and get that second mellow. There is a strong undertone in Christanity to delay instant gratification. I guess it depends on where you are at the moment in your view of religion will determine how you apply this to religion.
