Do not be discouraged by the evil王山夆 10/09 277
Just on last Sunday night , an evil man killed 58 people and wounded over 500 at Las Vegas. People asked why such evil thing happened, and the police tried to figure out why this man did such a evil thing.
We do not know exactly why, but we do know there is evil in the world, the evil will be in the world for a long time, and the evil will be judged on the final day.
In one story , Jesus told his disciples ,“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew."
The farmer is Jesus Christ , the good seed are the people who belong to him; his enemy is the evil , and the weeds are the wicked who belong to the evil. The weed will grow with the crops till the day of harvest, the day of the final judgement.
So, do not be surprised by such evil things , do not be discouraged by the evil, and do not have doubt in the Lord. When you have doubt , when you fell discouraged , come to the Lord and pray to him, he will fill your heart with his faith again.
Bible verses (Matthew 13:24-30 NLT)
Here is another story Jesus told: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew."
The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?’ “‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed. “‘Should we pull out the weeds?’ they asked. “‘No,’ he replied, ‘you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.’”
