Then the man’s servants came to him and asked, ‘Where did the weeds come from?’  <br/>The man answered, ‘An enemy planted the weeds.’  <br/>The servants asked, ‘Do you want us to pull up the weeds?’  <br/>The man answered, ‘No, because when you pull up the weeds, you might also pull up the wheat. Let the weeds and the wheat grow together until the harvest time. At harvest time I will tell the workers to gather the weeds and tie them together to be destroyed. Then gather the wheat and bring it to my barn.’ – Slide 7
