Disable Parenthesis Matching In Neovim

I switched to using `init.lua`` for my Neovim config. The way to disable standard-plugins^ is a little different that what I had before. To turn off the highlighting of matching parenthesis I added this towards the top of my config file:

vim.g.loaded_matchparen = 1

It was lower down in the kickstart config I used as a foundation. It didn't work for me until I moved it higher.

Prior Version

For reference, the version from my original `.vim` init file was:

:let loaded_matchparen = 1
