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
