Luke 13.18-21

He said therefore, "What is the Kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree; and the birds of the air made nests in its branches."

And again he said, "To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God? It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened."

As everyone knows by now... "Like a mustard seed" is more or less "like a weed."

And it's subversive. It changes everything it touches.

Once there's even a little of it at work in you (and it's too late now; it's already at work in you!) it will continue to develop.

But "kingdom"? Why call it "the kingdom of God?" "The reign of God"?

To become who we are, we've had to forget the connection to God. This has been very interesting, and fun, but it's no way to live: too scary, too unpleasant. To let God rule openly, in this bod... and this silly mind... and all around here; that's how life needs to be.
