Text: Matthew 13:24-30
Inside Jesus’ parables lies many kingdom secrets and this is why it is important to do a study on all the parables of the Master. The parable of wheat and Tares is telling us a deep story.
The wheat in the big picture are children of God in this world. However, relevant to us as individuals, the wheat is the seed of the Word of God planted in our hearts. They will ultimately grow and bear fruit. It is so sure that up you can go to sleep on it. Whatever Word of God you allow to sink into your heart and mind will bear the fruit of God’s Will in your life. Just believe.
The Tares in the big picture, are the children of darkness that are planted by the enemy among believers whom satan plants in God’s vineyard to create confusion. These tares also represents satan’s ideas and compromise that he suggests to us through culture, trends and secular beliefs. They will normally grow with the wheat and look like wheat until the harvest when their appearance and fruit are different.
Beware of things, music and environments that plant tares. Stay away from things that plant words, opinion, ideology and philosophies that are contrary to the Heart of the Father and His Kingdom.
This parable is also teaching us that God cares about each one of us and would never make a decision that would favour the big picture without considering how it affects each one among us. The Master told them not to go and uproot the tares when the wheat and the tares were all still young and tender. He knew that the possibility of uprooting the some wheat along with the tares is really high. Thus showing that He cared about the wellbeing of each wheat which in the big picture represents us all. God cares about you and will not make decisions for a greater good that will affect you negatively.
He is also showing us that we should always consider each member of team and make sure that we loose none like Jesus, no matter the odds. Let the well being of each and all be your priority.
Father, help me build the inner shield and defense system that gives no room to the planting of tares in my heart by the enemy in Jesus Mighty Name.
Father, help me to always have your mind and always consider every member of my team in all decisions that I will be making this year in Jesus Mighty Name.
