Nuff Said

Friday July 22nd Matthew 13: 27 "The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?' 28 " 'An enemy did this,' he replied. "The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?' O so eager. Let us at them, we will take care of them. I wonder what the motivation is of those who wish to separate the children of God from the children of God? I think as my friend Bill Warren would say, “it’s all first commandment stuff” Nuff said!! It is the desire to go back in the garden, eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and this time we won’t screw it up. Pinky Promise. There are two indications of evil in this story. One is the diabolical one who planted the weeds among the wheat. The other is the servants who want to go out there and pull up all the weeds and if some wheat gets trampled and pulled up in the process, so be it. In this world we have more to fear from the servants than from the diabolical one. Our job in this world is not to weed out the bad seed out there in the world. It is the more difficult task of removing the weeds in our own hearts.
