“The kingdom of heaven is like…” is included in several parables in this chapter of Matthew and a few more times later on in the gospel. Mark and Luke write, “kingdom of God” in some of the parables they provide for us to learn. It stuck me as interesting this morning as I read news of troubles in this world. The kingdom that we are hoping for, that we are waiting for, is not like the kingdom of this world.
