The gospel is not for the proud but for the humble of heart. Those who seek the first places in the meetings and are eager to be important people cannot grasp the message of the gospel with their hearts, only those who become the last enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Self-love or the sense of self-esteem when it is very high becomes a psychological trap that leads us to error. The Kingdom of God as Jesus teaches requires an attitude of simplicity and humility before others: "Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" in Matthew 5:3.
An example of the Kingdom of God was the life of the apostle Paul. Paul who was the apostle of the gentiles, in the first epistle to the Corinthians, explains how he brought the gospel to those who needed it: "Among the weak in faith I become weak like one of them, in order to win them. So I become all things to all people, that I may save some of them by whatever means are possible. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings" 1 Corinthians 9:22-23.
In the face of oppression and injustice, the Kingdom of Heaven is a message of mercy (kindness, gentleness, compassion): "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful" Luke 6:36.
Bear and be patient with the shortcomings of others, especially with those weak in faith and spiritual knowledge, to strengthen them and win them to Christ and his wisdom. This is what we have to do if we want as adult Christians to expand the Kingdom of Jesus and follow the example of Paul.
The Kingdom of God is often presented to us as a contradiction, the Kingdom of God is a servant because it is at the same time sovereign, the Kingdom of God is presented to us as the smallest seed because at the same time it is the tree that bears fruit. If we are capable of understanding the wisdom of God beyond appearances, that is, of the small and the great, of the insignificant and the majestic, it is because we understood Paul's teaching with our hearts. Paul taught with great intelligence and devotion the Kingdom of Jesus.
