We have been looking at what the Lord tells us about loving OneAnother.
We began with…
35 “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
We are looking at what love means.
We are looking at who OneAnother is.
We have spent several days on the “parable of the sower” in Matthew 13.
Review if needed… see blog… dalemoore.tv
Immediately after telling the parable, answering a question, then interpreting the parable, Jesus speak another parable.
This is important.
Remember the setting.
1 That day Jesus went out of the house and was sitting by the sea.
2 And large crowds gathered to Him, so He got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd was standing on the beach.
Now, ask the Lord to speak…
Be certain to take captive the thought of “I know what that means”…
Determine to hear the heart of the Lord…
Take your questions to Him…
24 Jesus presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field.
25 But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away.
26 But when the wheat sprouted and bore grain, then the tares became evident also. 27 The slaves of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’
28 And he said to them, ‘An enemy has done this!’ The slaves *said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?’
29 But he *said, ‘No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them.
30 Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
What is the Lord saying?
How do we respond?
How do we live?
Which are you?
