Glimpsing Heaven

Larry Patten challenged his readers on July 17, 2008 to find their own parables for the "realm of love" or kingdom of God. I'm working on mine (instead of writing a sermon about some). They aren't quite fleshed out, but well, you get what you get when I'm procrastinating while writing a sermon.

The kingdom of God is like a mother nursing her child. The more life-giving milk the child receives, the more milk will be available for life in the future.

The kingdom of God is like a raging 3 year old who clings in love and desperation to the very one who has made her so angry.
