Wise Words for Today

Jesus’ kingdom is not like the other kingdoms of the world, and that’s the point. It is a different kind of kingdom than the worldly kingdoms based on money, power, violence, and sex. The kingdom of God, which Jesus came to inaugurate, is meant to create an alternative reality in this world and, ultimately, to transform the kingdoms of this world. Inaugurated by Jesus, but not yet brought to its final fulfillment, it is always a kingdom that is “already” but “not yet.”
