No fairy tale kingdom

Our Father in heaven,
      may your name be kept holy.
  May your Kingdom come soon.
  May your will be done on earth,
      as it is in heaven. Matt 6:9-10

Ever think about what sort of reputation God would have if His will truly was reflected in our everyday lives? What sort of environment could be created if we lived like His kingdom actually included the places where we learn and eat and do business?  Jesus didn’t start the Lord’s prayer with “let’s pretend.”

Lord, help me to mean what I pray and live like I mean it.
