Weeds and Wheat


Sunday, July 17, 2011 10:34 AM
Matthew 13:24- 43 (Weeds and Wheat)

At the sprouting stage, it can be hard to distinguish weeds from good garden plants. But when they grow up, the difference becomes obvious to the experienced gardener. Unlike weeds and good plants, however, human beings have a free choice about whether or not they are going to be beneficial to the Lord’s garden. And what makes things even more complex, that choice is not final until the last breath. So it ill behooves those of us who consider ourselves “wheat” to be judging those who seem to be “weeds”. Let us rather pray for them that they may repent and join us in giving glory to God. And let us not forget to pray for ourselves that we may be faithful to the end!
