Weeds Among the Wheat (Reposted from 2009)

Posted 01-24-2020 at 09:12 AM by snowduck


Matthew 13:24 - 30 - He put another parable before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, 'Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?' He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' So the servants said to him, 'Then do you want us to go and gather them?' But he said, 'No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn." - This parable from the Bible teaches us that there will be unbelievers in the world next to believers. When Jesus spoke of an enemy sowing bad seed, he was talking about the devil, who is working against God all the time. Jesus also tells us the "weeds" and the "wheat" will both be judged by him and Christians are not to work against unbelievers or risk working against believers. God's "field" is the world and his "barn" is the kingdom of Heaven. We all need to become "wheat" that bears grain for Christ so we can be saved and live with him in his kingdom. "What about Jesus?"
