the kingdom of God is like an orchestra

so tonight i spent a solid amount of time hanging out a band concert. within the first “movement,” i saw a parable:

The Kingdom of God is like and orchestra

I imagine myself at this orchestra, sitting next to Jesus and he leans over and whispers. He whispers so quietly that you have to force yourself to really understand his murmurs. He makes sure I am really listening and then he says, “The kingdom of God is like a symphony orchestra made up of freshmen. Individuals don’t have the lung strength or experience to make beautiful sounds. Even entire sections have quite a difficult time keeping perfect time with one another. The strength, force, and beauty of a great orchestra only come from unity, teamwork, submission, shared passion and unison. The whole is much, much greater than the sum of it’s parts.”
