Yesterday, I wrote a post based on the descriptions Jesus gave of the Kingdom of Heaven as recorded in Matthew 13. Today I read a sermon about the same passage, published in the book The Seeds of Heaven by Barbara Brown Taylor.
Taylor says that one of the characteristics all of the metaphors in this passage share is that they speak of the Kingdom of God as hidden -- perhaps hidden in the ordinary.
Why would God hide the Kingdom of Heaven?
As that question floated through my mind, another question surfaced.
Could it be that it's not that God has hidden it, but that we fail to look for it? Do we need to open our eyes to find what is right in front of us?
Where today could you have witnessed the Kingdom? Where will you see it this afternoon, if you will look?
