He answered and said unto them, “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one…” – Matthew 13:37-38 KJV
There are a lot of goatheads in my yard. It’s common to track them in the house and step on them when walking around barefoot. Stepping on a thorn hurts! Not only is it annoying, it’s almost impossible to avoid, no matter how much the house is swept.
In this world there is both good and evil. It is all mixed together. We have good days and bad days, but when we trust in the Lord, we have more good days than bad ones because He helps us see what is right rather than focus on what is going wrong. Amen.
