Saturday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
The image Jesus uses today’s gospel is a common everyday example of planting, harvesting, and sorting the good fruit from the bad. Weeds can spoil and even kill a good harvest if they are not separated and destroyed at the proper time. Uprooting them too early, though, can wipe out the good plants in the process. Just as nature teaches us patience, so God's patience also teaches us to guard the word which he has planted in our hearts and to beware of the unhelpful force of sin and dishonesty which can destroy it. God's word brings life, but Satan, the father of lies, seeks to destroy the good seed which God plants in the hearts of those who listen to his word. God's judgment is not hasty, but it does come. And in the end, God will reward each person according to what he or she has sown and reaped in this life. In that day God will divide the evil from the good. Do we allow God's word to take deep root in our heart?
Word of the Day...
Hebrews 12:1 Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, forgive us for our sin. Not just our blatant sins, but our willingness to dabble in things that are not holy, to flirt with things that are spiritually unsafe, and to expose myself to things that leave a remains of Satan's world. Give us strength to say no to the things that distract us from you and to embrace with passion those things that make us more like you. In the name of Jesus our Lord we pray. Amen.

24Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. 27 And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?' 28 He said to them, `An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, `Then do you want us to go and gather them?' 29 But he said, `No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'
