We learn from Jesus today that God is aware that there are weeds growing within the wheat. God is content to let them grow together, only to be separated later, at harvest time. We let God be God while we grow into the harvest we are meant to be. Our lives are not to be filled with judgmentalism but with mercy. “Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone.” These are gentle reminders for us that as disciples, followers of the Son of God, we are content to allow God to act in his own time.
