DG BookGospel: Matthew 13:24-30
Jesus told the people another parable, “The kingdom of heaven can be compared to a man,
who sowed good seed in his field. While everyone was asleep, his enemy came, and sowed
weeds among the wheat, and went away.

When the plants sprouted and produced grain, the weeds also appeared. Then, the servants of the owner
came, and said to him, ‘Sir, was it not good seed that you sowed in your field? Where did the weeds come from?’
He answered them, ‘This is the work of an enemy.’ They asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull up the weeds?’

He told them, ‘No, when you pull up the weeds, you might uproot the wheat with them. Let them grow together, until
harvest; and, at harvest time, I will say to the workers: Pull up the weeds first, tie them in bundles and burn them; then
gather the wheat into my barn.’”

Reflection:

Weren’t the servants a bit too overzealous in wanting to weed off the land? What if what appears to be weed is not weed
at all? Do they know enough to pull out weeds without causing harm to the wheat nearby? Could it be possible that the
wheat might grow stronger with some weeds competing with them? Fortunately, the Master had greater wisdom
and patience. He knew how to play the waiting game. Perhaps some weeds might turn out to be actually wheat! Don’t we
find some children branded too early to be “weeds” turn out to be the true “wheat” for the family, and vice versa? Too often
well-meaning interventions without sufficient discernment may do more harm than good. As a wise saying goes, if I have
God’s power, I would change the world; but if I have God’s wisdom, probably I may not. The best option is to discern
with the Lord and do whatever he tells us.
