They are similar in nature
And in appearance as they grow;
As for a difference in their structure
It’s too difficult to know.
They grow together side by side
As they appear to be twins,
But their foundations are not similar
And there’s discrepancy within.
The tares compete with the wheat
For water, food and sun,
But these weeds attract the pests
Rendering them useless to anyone.
And the time of harvest does arrive
Where a sifting will take place,
As the real grain is put aside
While the weeds furnace they face.
As the wheat will bow its golden head
While the tares stand proud and tall;
The wheat demonstrates humility
While the tares prepare to fall.
To have a heart of wheat
Can be fruitful in many ways,
But a heart that produces tares
Brings deception to its days.
The Lord will seperate the two
As all will be exposed;
Let’s ensure our grain can be harvested
As we will reap what we will sow.
(C) P.B. 2014
‘Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest, I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ‘ Matthew 13:30
“For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” Galatians 6:8
