The kingdom of God is always unexpected; it catches me by surprise and demands responses from me that jolt me out of my mediocrity. Its values are counter-cultural. There the poor come first; despised people are important; wealth is for sharing; hatred is out; forgiveness is in; love is all that matters in the end. Wow!

The kingdom of God is always unexpected – very true. Kingdom of fellow mortals is predictable and prone to come to a stand-still. Ignatian weapon of discernment has the answer for a relaunch in the right direction.
