A PARABLE: “The Kingdom of Heaven is Like…”

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a meme first discovered and shared with many friends.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like F4 Key after the Blue Screen of Death.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like eating a meal at a restaurant, knowing you only have $2 to your name, and the wait staff tells you the meal was paid for by a stranger.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like eating a meal at a restaurant, knowing you only have $2 to your name, and the wait staff tells you the meal was paid for by the wait staff.

The Kingdom of God is like new car smell.  It is distinct, unique, and comes after a heavy price is paid.

The Kingdom of God is like the feeling of putting your hand in your jacket pocket and finding $20.  You then hand that $20 to a beggar you pass by because you could.

The Age to Come in Christ is like Amish dandelion jelly on a fresh made warm buttermilk biscuit.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like an orphan who bounces from house to house and finds a home with parents who permanently adopt them.  The orphan is at once elated, but also wonder if they will ever be turned out.  The orphan tests the boundaries in ignorance and angst and disobedience.  They find firm boundaries with good reason and consistent love for the adoption was permanent.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like refunded bank fees from a mistake you legitimately made.

The Kingdom of God is like aloe on a sunburn on fair skin in Yuma, Arizona.
