kingdoms

Do I allow myself to be sucker-punched by envy and jealousy? Do I dig deep into an interior whining over what I cannot do at a particular moment? Where is my connection with the Father? How can I claim to be part of his kingdom if I live for the kingdom(s) around me?

Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he answered, "The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, "Look, here it is!' or "There it is!' For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you."-Luke 17:20-21

For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.-Romans 14:17

Jesus answered him, "Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above."-John 3:3
