It took some thinking on my part too. The modern world moves slowlwy along the road of self-destruction. And Christ was always talking in parables about the kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God is like a sower who went out to sow.
Now put that to the modern day and look at the different kind of media, individaul messages (I’m thinking of atheists, here) hurtful words, dissension among nations — all these are seeds being sown right now in our world.
You can also transfer the other parables about the kingdom of God in Christ’s day to what is happening in the modern world.
The kingdom of God is like a farmer who sowed good seed, but someone came and sowed weeds.......
The kingdom of God is like a owner who builds a hedge around the vineyard and then leaves the tenants in charge — are we the current tenants?
The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed.......
The analogies are endless.
Still not getting it, sorry. Maybe I’m just too tired.
