‘Where then did the weeds come from?’
The farmer knew he had planted good seeds. He was very mindful that both the good seeds and weeds must be allowed to grow together until harvest time. However, the question we will always be faced with is, ‘Where then did the weeds come from, where have we as human beings walked away from our nature to be good?’
Then the harvesters will be instructed to collect the weeds first, tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into the barn. We are reminded that on the Day of Judgment we all must account for our good and bad deeds while here on earth.
It is our hope that it is our good deeds, positive attitudes, and love for each other, that will allow us to be chosen. We will be challenged, nevertheless, by human weeds. It is the Grace of God that will help us to function in a manner whereby good will always triumph over evil.
