A Parable for Pentecost

A Parable for Pentecost

The Kingdom of Heaven is like

a man with a dandelion seed

which he plants on his beautiful, grassy lawn

a weed grows

it’s seeds blow on the wind

soon the man’s lawn is full of dandelions

their seeds blow on the wind

soon the neighbours have dandelions

soon the whole town has dandelions

and there’s nothing anyone can do about it

 

That is how it is with faith

one person has it,

a little

then a lot

then his or her neighbour have it

and pretty soon the whole town has it

and there’s nothing anyone can do about it

 

Along came a man with a solution

he had chemicals that would kill the weeds

and all the weeds were killed

but pretty soon a dandelion grew up anyway

spread it’s seeds on the wind

and pretty soon the whole town was full of dandelions again

and there’s nothing anyone can do about it

 

That is how it is with faith

and there’s nothing anyone can do about it
