Why is the Kingdom of God like a pumpkin?

Pumpkins are a wholesome staple food in many parts of the world. They are so versatile as they can be used in everything from scones to stir fries or even dips but that is not what makes a pumpkin a hero of this story.  Did you know that the Kingdom of Heaven can be like a pumpkin?

Good Foundations and Sowing Widely

For more than 10 years I have been trying to renovate my house but cracks in the walls keep appearing and no matter how many times I fix the doors they will not shut!  The problem was that ¾ of the house had a sand foundation and ¼ was on clay.  The pylons were only put in the ground about 6 inches and there is a spring beside the house!  For 10 years I have tried to fix it from the top down.  I failed and it has cost me tens of thousands of dollars. I realised that there was no way around it I had to dig out the foundations and do it from the ground up.
