Jesus teaches us something about the kingdom:
- The kingdom isn’t something to be hidden. If we understand and believe, we need to share about it. A lamp should be on a lamp stand. Faith exercised brings blessing. Use it or lose it!
- The kingdom will grow; nothing will stop it! It will shelter its occupants until God brings about the harvest at the appointed time.
Have we ever had a time in our lives when, because of suffering or fear, we cried out, “Don’t you care?” Perhaps what we need during those times is a reminder of God’s providence and majesty. The one who controls the wind and the sea is holding us in the palm of His hand!
