wheat and weeds

Jesus tells a story of the field that was planted with good seed and bad seed grew up among it. Basically it let God be the judge of what is good and bad and not us. There is a beautiful wheat field on the north side of Highway 7 in Oklahoma. In the middle of it is a spreading tree. A couple of weeks ago it was pure beautiful wheat. So perfect it seemed and the tree floating in among. The wheat has been harvested and now two weeks later, where the field has remained fallow there are numerous weeds of varied sizes coming up all over the field. These weeds apparently waited until the good seed was harvested, where there was a vacum, to grow up. No doubt they will be 'turned' in the next planting.

Humm? I think all too often we expect that we are the ones to do the sorting. But no. The strength of the good seed was evident. We also need to be strong. Seeking to be good seed in the midst of the worlds wanting to only grow weeds because together we will bring the fullest harvest.

God abides
