This passage provides stories and information that continue to teach us about the Kingdom of Heaven. We see that God has a plan that will not fail and is almost complete. Christ loves us so much he did all he could to bring us near. We must expect opposition but know that Christ is with us. We must not shy away from that opposition but instead turn to the Lord for strength. And in the midst of it all, fulfill our mission on this earth, take compassion on the hurting, and share his suffering and glory.
