The Problem with Weeds

The Problem with Weeds

March 16, 2014 | Rev. Doug Hucke

An age-old question is "How do you account for evil in the world if there is a God?" According to Jesus our job is not to root out the evil. Our job is to nurture the seeds of the kingdom where we are planted, emphasizing the positive and helping others, thus crowding out the weeds, rather than criticizing and sitting in judgment. In the end Jesus will handle weeds and the judgment.

Series Information

One of Jesus' favorite teaching methods was the parable, and parables in Matthew address a favorite subject, the Kingdom. Over the centuries his parables have been subject to extremes of interpretation, both overly allegorical and overly simplistic. In reality Jesus used parables to both reveal and conceal important information, depending on who was listening.
