We continue our series on Jesus’ parables in the gospel according to Matthew, this week, with the parable of the wheat and the weeds. It’s the story of a rogue, villain gardener who plants weed seeds in a wheat field. The servants who work in the field, ask the owner if they should rip out the weeds, but the answer is that they might mistakenly tear out the good stuff along with the bad. The property owner says that he will make sure it gets sorted out after the harvest.
Join us this week as we wrestle with the difficulties of telling wheat from weeds . . . good from evil. Are we qualified for calling out the bad ones amongst us?
Scripture: Matthew 13:24-43
