The Kingdom of God

Jesus often spoke in parables 
that made it difficult to understand 
if you were a person who
did not like to think!

Perhaps He did not like to give wisdom
and secrets to those who would not value it.
He said don't give pearls to swine, after all!

In Matthew 13, He compared the 
Kingdom of God to yeast.
Yeast is a living organism.
When you mix it with flour,
the mixture grows, expands, and then
it is made into bread, which feeds our bodies.
It is not our business to be the yeast,
but we have to put ourselves in 
God's hands so we can be the 
bread that blesses others.

Lord, show me what you have for me to do,
and how my gifts can bear fruit 
for Your Kingdom!

Every week I choose one from my 
wonderful visitors who take the time
and trouble to leave a comment,
to receive an ATC or a postcard from me.

This week it is JoDee Luna from 

I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

    Arts, music, service can be the bread that I can be and do for others and God.
