In the familiar Parable of the Sower, God appears to be either a bad farmer, or at least an unusual one, for letting the weeds grow up among the wheat. Won't those weeds take nutrients the wheat could have used? Won't they shade and choke out the wheat? But the explanation Jesus gives offers us some relief from things we might otherwise be doing and frees us up to concentrate on loving our neighbors.
