The parable of the wheat and the weeds.

Jesus offered his listeners another parable. “The kingdom of heaven may be thought of as being like a farmer who sowed good wheat seed in his field. One night while he slept his enemy came and planted weeds in amongst the good wheat seed. Later the plants sprouted. The wheat and weeds had grown up together.

The man’s servants asked him ‘Didn’t you only sow wheat here? Then why are there weeds?’

‘This was done by an enemy!’ he said.

His servants asked him ‘Do you want us to pull out the weeds?’

‘No’ he said. ‘You might accidentally uproot the good wheat at the same time. Let them both grow together until harvest time. Then I will tell the reapers to sort out the weeds, tie them in bundles, and burn them, but put the wheat in the barn.'”

MT 13:24-30
