Kingdom Work I
“The Kingdom of God is like…” is a phrase with which Jesus begins many of the parables that teach about the Reign of God. This week, in the parable of the wheat and the weeds, Jesus challenges the assumptions we make about who is “in” and who is “out” of the Kingdom, and reminds us that the sorting we sometimes like to do is not our job. Kingdom Work is about growth! We who trust in God’s grace are reminded to leave the judgment to the one who alone is King.
