Jesus prays that the Father’s Kingdom would come to earth. Do you see how politically subversive this prayer is? The King at the time was a man named Herod. It was Herod’s kingdom. The Kingdom of God is radically different from the Kingdom of Herod. It’s a place where despite economic status, everyone has their daily bread – or their daily needs met because we share with one another. It’s a place where we refuse to live by cycles of violence and vengeance, but instead live by a cycle of forgiveness.
