Living with the Weeds


Date: July 23, 2017

By: Rev. Lorrie Daly-Price

Weeds in the garden, it is a natural occurrence. We know that from our own gardens, right? Or if you have had the privilege of spending time on a farm, weeds grow. They do naturally but not in the parable we will hear this Sunday. Someone has deliberately planted weeds in their neighbours farm. It’s sabotage. Doesn't that sound outrageous to you? Can you imagine someone in your community going around to the surrounding farmers fields or community gardens planting weeds. That would be very poor form.

To make things even trickier is the type of weed that was scattered by this evil doer. It looked exactly like the wheat that had been planted by the farmer in the early growing stages. In other words, you didn’t know you had weeds in the garden until it was almost too late. When the farmer is notified though he tells his servants to just leave them where they are until the time of harvest.
