Wheat and weeds, trees and birds, yeast and flour. It’s a lot to handle. It takes time, context, understanding. In our eagerness to know Jesus more, we try to think we have decoded the message, when the bottom line is that Jesus is teaching them to listen. Teaching them to trust. Teaching them to follow and watch with him. We wrestle with these stories and try to make sense out of them. We get confused, and either assign one meaning or another to the story, or move on to something we can more easily understand.
