Lessons Learned: Being Lazy With the Gardening

All the careful planning in the world can’t compete with sabotage. The farmer had an enemy that wanted his crop to be ruined, or at least bothersome. From this parable we learn that despite opposition, God’s Kingdom will continue to grow until the harvest. Keep at it and don’t get discouraged. Listen to this week’s sermon to hear more.

Matthew 13:24-30

Parable of the Wheat and Weeds

24 Here is another story Jesus told: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. 25 But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. 26 When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew.

27 “The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?’

28 “‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed.

“‘Should we pull out the weeds?’ they asked.

29 “‘No,’ he replied, ‘you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.’”
