Come to the Kingdom

Day 127  May 8, 2013

“One day children were brought to Jesus in the hope that he would lay hands on them and pray over them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.”  -Matthew 19:13,14

“Mail art!  Take an existing postcard and alter it, then send it …, after documenting it, of course.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“What you do in the present—by painting, preaching, singing, sewing, praying, teaching, building hospitals, digging wells, campaigning for justice, writing poems, caring for the needy, loving your neighbor as yourself—will last into God’s future. These activities are not simply ways of making the present life a little less beastly, a little more bearable, until the day when we leave it behind altogether. They are part of what we may call building for God’s kingdom.”
― N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church

“He used synagogues for meeting places and taught people the truth of God. God’s kingdom was his theme – that beginning right now they were under God’s government, a good government! He also healed people of their diseases and of the bad effects of their bad lives.”   -Matthew 4:23  (The Message)

“The Kingdom of God is within you.” 
― Jesus Christ
