I think that Christians can fall into two ruts in their understanding of the kingdom of God. First, it can become easy to take God’s kingdom goodness for granted and forget the integral part we play in it. Second, I think we only understand bits and pieces of what it means to be part of God’s kingdom plan. In both situations we will find ourselves less intentional or even aware of kingdom work. It seems that in many Christian circles our part in the kingdom of God boils down to “saving souls” and our acts of service are only for the sake of that purpose.
Have you ever been frustrated during an intense conversation? Dumb question, I know. Of course we all have encountered the frustration. Not the best question to begin a blog on the topic of asking good questions. The reason I started with that question is because it is often the type of question we ask; it only requires a “yes” or “no” answer not to mention it’s a question we already know the answer to.
