JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE WEEDS
Matthew 13:30 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.’”
The workers in the field were concerned about the wheat when the weeds appeared. But it looked like the landowner was unperturbed. He did not even to blink at the thought that the wheat would suffer if they grew together with the weeds so much so that he was willing to let them remain side by side until harvest.
The answer is this, the presence of the weeds does not mean the wheat cannot grow. In fact, it means the wheat can thrive despite the weeds. In the priestly prayer in John, Jesus prayed thus ‘ I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil one.”
Our potential for expansion might seem that it can to be stifled by the things, people or situations around us but we can still thrive as wheat in the midst of weeds. So do not allow the presence of weeds communicate wrongly to you that you cannot bear good fruit.
