In the kingdom in another foreign land there was another prince. His duty to the patriarchs was something he obeyed but never before the service to the King. He continually followed the King. At times though this made the patriarchs uncomfortable. So uncomfortable in fact that the prince was banished from the kingdom. Though he was loved he was told it was probably better for him to serve outside this kingdom. They knew people liked him but he made them a little too uncomfortable. This had to be dealt with after all the patriarchs could not have their kingdom dwindling to a small size. They wanted their people comfortable. They wanted to please the people over pleasing the King. So the young prince left on his way to seek out another place where people deeply desired to please the King over anything else.
The Father watches, the Father hurts, The Father waits. The Father knows that persecution will come to His true followers. Yet He commanded us to love and encourage one another daily. In the kingdom it does not always happen while it should. Unity is the thing He desires yet He waits while time continues to draw short. I wonder what we will be doing when He returns for us? What will life in the kingdom look like?
