The Parable Of The Weeds

Extract: Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven is like someone who sowed wheat in their field but when everyone was asleep an enemy came and sowed weeds among it. Instead of removing the weeds, because it would destroy the roots of the good wheat, the Master decided to wait until harvest time when he would tell the reapers, “To first collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned, but then gather the wheat into my barn.” (Matthew 13:30b)

Thought: The opportunity awaits everyone to be gathered and received into ‘God’s Barn’, where the ‘good wheat’ is already being collected.

Reflection: God our Father, I ask you to help me make the right choices today; may they be for your greater honour and glory. This I ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
