The Essential 100 Day 58: Matthew 13: The Kingdom Of Heaven

24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.27 “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?’28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.”The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them.30 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 13:24-30

This whole passage with all the parables that Jesus taught is all about the Kingdom of Heaven.  I focused on the wheat and the tares because I was looking at it from a different perspective.  God allows the enemy to have his way with people we may deal with everyday.  These of course are the weeds.  Sometimes these weeds can have an adverse effect on the wheat if that wheat is weak.  We can be easily influenced into something we may regret.  We have to allow the water that God provides to get to us so that we can stand tall and firm in this life.  The Holy Spirit is the perfect example of getting watered everyday.  We also get light from the Holy Spirit.  So to be a strong piece of wheat we have to make steps toward getting watered and plenty of light.  Praying and bible study are the best way to get the water and light to stay strong against the weeds that may be sown overnight.
