Honestly there is nothing better than walking on the beach and eating breakfast with this sweet women. This was one of the best mornings last week the air was sweet and it seemed like a perfect morning to enjoy the beach and ask God some questions, and catch up with this lady.
Recently I've read through Matthew and with a lot of crazy things going on recently I have had lots of questions and this one passage just answered what I had asked God.
A lot of people ask why there is evil in this world and if we have a God why aren't these bad things taken away. I found in Matthew 13 this passage,
24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’
28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.
“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’
29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’” “
God did not put the evil here, the enemy did. We are lucky enough to have a God who gives us the freedom to decide for ourselves where and how we are going to dedicate our life and sometimes that does lead to bad or evil things occurring. Because of these options he gives us we are able to feel the strength of his love, he loves us even though we can be evil and we sin. God let's us "grow together" because we are supposed to stay strong even when "weeds" or evils are around us and we are supposed to spend time and live with all sorts of people.
That's what I got from this passage and would love to hear what y'all got out of this. <3
