Economy of Grace

If you want peace…produce peace.

~~~

Matthew 21:43
“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 Jesus repeatedly reprimanded for their behavior were the priests 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?

When we do…we are experiencing a taste of God’s kingdom in the here and now.

Perhaps if we let go of our ego’s desires we would be open to cooperate with God’s desires for our lives.

Then the kingdom of God would truly be at hand!

May my will be one with the Creator of all things.
