  • Matthew 13:33
  • Matthew 18: 1–5
  • Matthew 18: 23–35
  • Mark 4:26–29
  • Luke 7:18–23
_ The Kingdom may start out small but it will soon grow.
_ The Kingdom, though small, will eventually transform the world.
_ The Kingdom exists in the person, deeds, and words of Jesus.
_ The Kingdom will grow even though we cannot see or explain how it is happening.
_ Forgiveness is an essential element of the Kingdom: We will be forgiven, therefore we must be forgiving.

_ In order to enter the Kingdom, we must recognize our own need for God.

Next, have the students complete their own analogies for the Kingdom of God.
