I was doing a teaching session with some people on God’s Kingdom. And one of the exercises was to browse through the parables in the gospels, and then to write your own parable about the Kingdom of God. Some of the ones I liked were:

  • diamondThe Kingdom of God is like a teacher preparing pupils for their exams. He pours himself, and all he knows into all of them, but only those who put their heart into it will pass.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is like a cold drink in an arid desert.
  • The Kingdom of God is like a man mining for diamonds. He leaves excited with a grubby rock, and slowly chips away at the outer layer, revealing the glittering diamond. Even then he’s not finished. He takes the diamond, examines it, plans it, and cuts it, into the most precious stone in the world.
