Should You Pull the Weeds or Leave Them Be?

Then he left the crowds and went into the house.
And his disciples approached him, saying,
“Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” 
He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; 
the field is the world, and the good seed are the children of the kingdom; the weeds are the children of the evil one, 
and the enemy who sowed them is the devil;
the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 
Matthew 13:36-39 (NRSV)
In this passage, Jesus explains the meaning of his parable about the weeds and wheat to his disciples. Is this the explanation you were expecting? Or did it surprise you? Is the wheat a metaphor for the church in today’s world? Join Pastor Leigh as we keep digging (no pun intended!) into the parables this week and what it all means for us today.
