Today, we begin looking at some of the most important words ever uttered on this planet: a series of parables in which Jesus reveals the secrets of God’s Kingdom.
Here’s the first selection. Ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate each and every word deeeeep in your soul:
“This is what the Kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain — first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
The Kingdom of God is mysterious. We may not always understand the process or see the progress. But we can trust God and depend on him to make the exact right things happen at the exact right time.
We sow seeds but it’s God who makes ’em grow. We don’t have to worry or struggle or try to make things happen on our own.
In other words, God is God and we’re not.
