Serving the Word: 26th July

TUESDAY 26th JULY 2022

Matthew 13, 36-43:

“Just as the tares are plucked up and burned, so it will be at the end of time…. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father”.

 

God does not pull up the tares for the time being. He lets it and the wheat grow together.

He is patient and knows how to wait. It is the time of harvest that determines the place of each thing.

Patience has a lot to do with tolerance.

We believe that we are the good wheat and that everything that does not fit in our way must be uprooted.

But Jesus’ feeling is different. His mercy, patience and understanding are very different from our mercy, patience and understanding.

He leaves the final judgement to God, who always has the last word.

And his last word is called Jesus.

Jesus is the Father’s mercy made flesh and palpable for all of us.

Jesus is always opportunity and salvation.

Examine yourself today on your degree of patience.

Never condemn on the basis of your own views.

Do not judge by appearances.

Learn patience, tolerance, forgiveness and mercy from Jesus.

Good day.
