It's the Little Things


Date: July 30, 2017

By: Rev. Lorrie Daly-Price

In our reading this week from the gospel of Matthew, Jesus takes the time to describe six parables. They are a series of snapshots taken from different perspectives. Each gives a little glimpse that adds to our understanding of God’s kingdom. They provide a new way to consider of seeing and doing things. Seeing heaven in a different way.

For most people I think I would be safe to suggest that it can be described as some far off place.

You might see it in your imagination as a favourite place that brings you peace and comfort. Like a beautiful white sandy beach with the water gently lapping on the shore.

And so this week Jesus uses a mustard seed, leaven, a buried treasure, a beautiful pearl and a net full of fish. The kingdom of heaven is like these, Jesus says. It is not so much something you can figure out or go out and find and you certainly don’t shop for it at a store or order it at amazon.ca.
