Jesus has been sharing 'Kingdom thinking' with His disciples and the multitude that surrounded Him. In the previous message, we saw Jesus share the need for simple trust (faith) in order to enter the Kingdom of God. Today's passage is actually a continuation of Jesus' discourse with the 'young rich man.' At the end of that discourse, Peter had asked a question regarding rewards, to which Jesus gave a summary answer 'everyone who has left ... will be rewarded.' The parable that Jesus shares in the first portion of today's passage is a word picture to provide additional information to His response to Peter. Though we will be rewarded, we MUST remember who we are ... and who God is! The second part of this passage highlights the importance of listening to Jesus' parable and applying it to our lives!
