PLANTING SEEDS . . . AND HARVEST BEYOND OUR WILDEST DREAMS
Jesus is teaching again. He’s trying to help us understand and embrace this kingdom of heaven living. He’s giving us all we need to live a discipleship that is beyond our wildest dreams.
Jesus told lots of parables, but he hardly ever explained them. This Sunday we’ll hear one big exception. A farmer is planting seed . . . Jesus explains . . . God is embedding the kingdom of heaven into life… We are the road/gravel/weeds/good earth. The faith life begins with God and requires our participation. The faith life is a beautiful cooperation between the master farmer and the simple plants, together growing into a bounty beyond our wildest dreams.
Learning effective cooperation is like learning your part of a beautiful dance. Cooperate, don’t dominate. Cooperate, don’t forsake.
