Beautiful wheat

“Should we pull out the weeds?” they asked.”No”, he replied, “you’ll uproot the wheat if you do.” Matt.13nlt

The tares have no fear or regard for the Master they claim to serve; they are disobedient to the words of Christ. They proudly pull up and kill the wheat, thinking they do service to God by killing ‘tares’. The real tares are ugly because they disobey the Lord they claim to serve, killing the precious wheat of God.

The wheat have respect for their Lord and Master; they are obedient to the words of Christ. They do not pull up and kill the tares, but they are the ones killed by the tares. They suffer like Jesus and wait for the harvest with obedience and humility and love and trust. Beautiful wheat.

  1. Thank you for this. When I read about Judas and his interaction with Christ and the apostles. He is the strongest type of “a tare” in the scripture. Christ treated him with kindness, graciousness, and true friendship despite his actions of stealing from the moneybag. I strongly suspect the apostles brought up this matter to Christ and he continued to let Judas to carry the money bag and figuratively hang himself (which became actually also due to the guilt).
    As you mentioned “They suffer like Jesus and wait for the harvest with obedience and humility and love and trust.”
    Many blessings !
    Shalom

  2. hi antipas, yes and interestingly, Judas was not a man from the “outside”, a Barbarian from another faraway land or a Roman pagan… he was …. a “Christian” per se, that is, someone from the inside, one professing to be a follower of Jesus. This “Judas pattern” of the tares betraying and killing the wheat— inside the Christian group—–(Christianity)— has been an ongoing pattern ever since Judas betrayed Jesus….. the pattern is on repeat cycle.
