Mt. 13: 24-30
Let them just grow together until harvest (Mt 13:30)
It is evident in community living, where good and evil, Gospel and sin, constantly get mixed up. Settling this situation as the servant suggests would seem the logical approach: «Do you want us to go and pull up the weeds?’» (Mt 13:28). But God’s patience is infinite, and He waits until the very last moment —as a good father would— for the possibility of a change: «Let them just grow together until harvest» (Mt 13:30).
The infinite mercy of the father is the reason for the existence of many of us, he hopes that we may become good and yield good fruit by the time of harvest.
