Jesus in Matthew’s gospel speaks about the kingdom of heaven more than any other theme. I'm quite intrigued as I look at what He has to say about it. I want to spend some time here at Another Red Letter Day digging into some of these statements and pictures Jesus makes and uses to describe it.
What is the ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ like?
Jesus said it’s like:
a man who sowed good seed in his field. - Matthew 13:24
a mustard seed - Matthew 13:31
leaven - Matthew 13:33
a treasure hidden in the field - Matthew 13:44
a merchant seeking fine pearls, - Matthew 13:45
a dragnet cast into the sea - Matthew 13:47
a head of a household - Matthew 13:52
a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. - Matthew 18:23
a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. - Matthew 20:1
a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. - Matthew 22:2
ten virgins - Matthew 25:1
Where is He going with this? I’m intrigued. Are you?
Don’t forget to shine.
