LET BOTH GROW TOGETHER
Matthew 13:27-30 “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 weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvester: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.”
Wheat and weeds grow together like believers and unbelievers living on earth. If the weeds oppose or choke the wheat, they must not be cut off.
The weed or unbeliever should be instructed to do right with meekness.
It is only on the last day that both wheat and weeds will be harvested and separated. The weeds will be collected, tied, and burned. The wheat will go to the barn, Christ’s Kingdom.
Believers must live with unbelievers and should make every effort to share Christ’s love.
