A Thousand Hills

 

Jesus sat in a boat

looking out over the landscape

water and the hill

became an amphitheatre

so all could hear Him

“Consider the sower who went out to sow”


dotted along the hillsides

were fields of wheat

“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field”


off in the distance was

the yellow of the mustard plants

tall as some trees

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed”


planted in rows on a hill

was a vineyard

“There was a landowner who planted a vineyard”


and there were olive and fig trees

“Now learn this parable from the fig tree:  As soon as its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near.  In the same way, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near – at the door!”


Jesus quotes from Holman Christian Standard Bible and New International Version
