Gardening 101: Is this A Weed or A Plant?

Sunday, June 11, 2017 View Enclosure Enclosure View Comments Comments (0)
This text stretches our understanding of gardening -- Jesus tells a story, a parable that puts a twist on our preconceived notions about gardening, suggesting that weeds be allowed to coexist with the healthy wheat plants. This parable (and all the parables Jesus shared) relates a familiar metaphor that the crowds could relate to. But behind the familiar metaphor, is always a hidden truth...a twist that revealed a deeper meaning that challenged the norm, and shed light on what God’s kingdom was really like. And so, what is it with Jesus and his peculiar farming techniques? And what can we learn from this parable to help us relate to our world today?
Scripture: Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
