A woman asked a smelly boy, “Have you ever taken a bath?” He replied, “Why, is one missing?”
What did Jesus mean when He told His disciples to seek His Kingdom? Probably not that it was missing. Why would they have to search for it, then? Remember that He told Nicodemus that he could not see His Kingdom unless he had been born again, from above. The influence that God has in our world is invisible to those who have no eyes to see it. Almost as if it is hidden.
