DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Enemies: In today’s Gospel of the “Parable of the good seed and darnel”, Jesus cautions us that the evil spirits are constantly lurking in our lives to tempt us to love God less, and eventually even to destroy our relationship with Him.  We are called to live a more vigilant faith. Pray for the wisdom never to take God’s Love for granted.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 13:24-30

Jesus put a parable before the crowds, ‘The kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everybody was asleep his enemy came, sowed darnel all among the wheat, and made off. When the new wheat sprouted and ripened, then the darnel appeared as well.

The owner’s labourers went to him and said, “Sir, was it not good seed that you sowed in your field? If so, where does the darnel come from?” He said to them, “Some enemy has done this.” And the labourers said, “Do you want us to go and weed it out?”

But he said, “No, because when you weed out the darnel you might pull up the wheat with it. Let them both grow till the harvest; and at harvest time I shall say to the reapers: First collect the darnel and tie it in bundles to be burnt, then gather the wheat into my barn.” ’
