What is the kingdom of God like?

Many people have different ideas. Before Jesus died, He preached that the kingdom of God was at hand. After Jesus’s death and resurrection, He said it is here. So what is it? Jesus spoke a parable about the kingdom. He said, it is like a mustard seed that is sown in the ground. And it grows big and the birds of the air come and find rest. The seed is sown in our heart and will grow big if allowed. Then the fruit isn’t for the plant, it’s for the master. Then the plant is for other people to find rest in. Never once did Jesus say it was for me, myself or I. We are part of the kingdom to serve God and fulfill not only God’s plan for us but for the people around us. The bible says that we were bought with price and we aren’t our own. But we are God’s children.
