Perhaps you face a difficult day. It is filled with good and bad and you wish you could just eradicate the bad, then it would be a good day! Perhaps you are one of those action people and you want to solve everything yesterday. Here are 3 lessons that will help you in life from the owner who knows all there is to know.
“Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’” (Matthew 13 v 24 – 30)
LIFE IS NOT PERFECT – The weeds grow with the wheat.
LIFE NEEDS DISCERNMENT – Distinguishing between wheat and weeds is made easier at harvest time when the wheat buds.
LIFE ISNT FOR MAKING SNAP JUDGMENTS – The owner of the field knows he has an enemy, knows the weeds are there but will delay dealing with the matter until the right time.
