Short Stories - Part 1: "Wheat and Weeds"
Series: Short Stories
Jesus shows us a picture of a good and growing field tended by a farmer. The enemy comes to sow in some weeds, and the farmers’ servants are rightly upset! They want to root out the evil, but the farmer says to be patient, that the time will come for the weeds to be collected and burned, and the crop harvested safely. We feel the angst and pull of a world that is sowed with evil. What do we do about it? If God is real, why doesn’t HE do something about it? Jesus shows us a different way to look at how we live in this world as we wrestle with the tension of what is, and the desire for what could and should be.
