Wisdom 12:13, 16-19, Ps86, Romans 8:26-27, Matt 13:24-43

Let them both grow till harvest

There are seven parables of the kingdom in this discourse. Each parable explains one aspect of the kingdom of Heaven. A colourful image or familiar process is more easily remembered, and understanding can follow. At one level this parable may quieten those who demand that God destroy bad people immediately. When I demand instant justice I may recall this story.
