“Therefore, I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.”
The only ones whom Jesus repeatedly reprimanded for “not getting it” were the scribes and Pharisees. They held tight to laws and rituals even when it meant being cold-hearted to those in need. What is the “fruit” of the kingdom of God? Love…mercy…grace…forgiveness and compassion. Are we producing such fruit with our lives? If we did…the kingdom of God would be at hand. For when the kingdom of God is present…there is love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and compassion. Are you using your gifts and talents primarily for you (ego)…or for God? Loving God, open our hearts to be builders of Your kingdom!
