The Kingdom of God

Jesus said to the crowds, ‘This is what the kingdom of God is like...'

In today's Gospel Jesus teaches the crowds on what the kingdom of God is like.  He uses parables to help the people understand.  He talks of seed quietly and mysteriously growing night and day into full maturity.  He talks of the mustard seed miraculously growing into a large tree big enough to provide shelter.

The kingdom of God is something miraculous, starting tiny and ending up huge, something mysterious that fulfills its own destination.  The image is of something internal and secret growing irresistibly into something huge.  This is the kingdom of God in me.

Lord Jesus, I say yes to being a part of Your kingdom.  Let it grow within me.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
