Matthew 13:24-30 Modern English Version (MEV)
The Parable of the Weeds
24 He told them another parable, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. 26 But when the shoots had sprung up and produced fruit, the weeds also appeared.
27 “So the servants of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Then where did the weeds come from?’
28 “He said to them, ‘An enemy did this.’
“The servants said to him, ‘Will you then have us go and gather them up?’
29 “But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the weeds, you pull up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather up the weeds first and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.’ ”
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away.
Hello when looking closely at this parable It is apparent that the enemy did things they did not know about or did not see it happen. Suddenly things began to look different, a person may develop a different feeling or idea than before that separates them. Circumstances arises or new job came, and they became separate or moved off from each other. The point would be that a difference caused a separation between people that were formerly allies or close associates and then got separated. It really does not matter what happened only that the people are no longer together anymore, so the enemy used a situation and separated people.
‘No, lest while you gather up the weeds, you pull up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. '
The situation suddenly looks very dangerous the difference in opinion that caused a division in the religion so that the weeds cannot be separated without hurting the wheat. This must be according to human nature where people tend to be too close to each other. They may not want to separate from each other right away so they require time to mature and then they can be safely separated. This is how religion has endured on Earth and the harvest is the Great Tribulation in which each man's action is revealed by fire, 2 Thessalonians 2:8.
