Let them grow until harvest

“‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along with them. Let them grow together until harvest; then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters, “First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’” (Mt 13: 28-30)

One of my favorite stories: Our Lord takes care of even the smallest part of the wheat. The wheat could be in danger—“you might uproot the wheat along with” the weed. His patience help us to grow, so that we experience how important we are for Him.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.” (Gospel Antiphon)
