"What Is the Kingdom Like?"
Rev. Todd Weir, bloomingcactus, 2011.
"To what would you compare the
Kingdom of Heaven?
It is like finding the technology stock you bought in the 1980s for $50
and suddenly realizing you are a millionaire.
It is like the owner of DeBeers finally finding the perfect diamond
and selling a billion dollar empire to have it.
It is like the harassed physician tired of the HMOs,
selling home and BMW and finding bliss in a mission in Congo.
It is like the crack addict waking up with a clear head and is free to choose a new life."
