What is the Kingdom of Heaven like?

What is the Kingdom of Heaven like?

The World:                The Kingdom of Heaven:

Abuse                         Vulnerable protected
Conflict                       Disagreement settled
Disadvantaged           Every opportunity an expression of beauty
Disease                      Comprehensive health care available
Displaced                   Homeless sheltered, migrants welcomed
Drought                      Thirst quenched
Famine                       Shortage met
Fundamentalism        Faiths respected and tolerated
Greed                         Fair deals
Hatred                        Loving partnerships
Hunger                       Hungry mouths fed
Inequality                   Basic rights accessible to all
Injustice                     Attempts to create justice
Loneliness                 Compassionate thoughts and deeds
Meanness                  Generosity of the “haves” for the “have-nots”
Poverty                       Lack provided for, needs met
Prejudice                    Bias tolerated
Racism                       Difference and diversity celebrated
Selfishness                 Selfless acts
Terrorism                    Opportunities to find a shared space
Unfriendliness            A smile and kindly word
War                            Hostility finding common ground leading to peace

Whatever the situation, the time, the place,
Let us share a little grace
Put others first before ourselves
And share the Kingdom of Heaven here and now on earth.
