Moving on…but first, let me point you to Bill Kinnon’s post on the latest absurdity.
The words of Matthew 5 are Jesus’ teaching on the coming of the Kingdom of God, now. Rather than a totally future event, I found it exhilarating to realize everything I do, say and think has potential to let the Kingdom come, in and through me. The smallest kindness and smallest bit of holiness, echoing the character of Christ is the Kingdom of God, now.
Sometimes the BIG stuff taking extreme efforts or the character of famous Christians seems so impossible to reach for but I can reach for the small stuff, every day, day in and day out. Once aware, we can consistently choose to be pathways for heaven to come to earth, a little bit at a time.
Update: I just came across this post by Mark in my reader. Read more here.
Lord, let us see glimpses of the Kingdom in the mundane … Open our eyes that we may see that the Kingdom of God is here.
