It’s one thing to retire from work but it’s quite another to retire from life. While it may be tempting to hid away during the retirement years this is the time to stay active, interested, and involved.
Have you ever asked, “What is the kingdom of heaven like?” If so, Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s exposition of Matthew 13:44–52 is just for you. Jesus emphasized what happens when the kingdom makes its way into our place, in the here-and-now, on earth.
There are no coincidences. Things don’t just happen—they’re planned. And God uses the events in our lives to get us to stop and pay attention to what He’s saying.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

The family of God is not a place for verbal putdowns, sarcastic jabs, critical comment, and harsh judgments. We get enough of that from the world. This is a place we need to assemble for the purpose of being encouraged.
When God wants us in His service sometimes that means rearranging our priorities and putting our pursuits on hold.
Life is all about relating to others in love, forgiveness, and grace. We need each other.
