The danger from contagion from

LESSON FOR JULY 28
THE WHEAT AND THE TARES.
LESSON TEXT?Matthew IS:?-30. 36-43.
GOLDEN TEXT?"Gather up ftrst th*
tare*, and bind theo. In bundle* to burn
them, but gal!.ar th* wheat Into u.y
t_rn." Matt. 13:20.
The thirteenth chapter of Mat?
thew's go&pel ls the great kingdom
chapter of the Bible. Seven parables
In thia chapter give us each of seven,
aspects or applications of the princi?
ples of the kingdom. In this lennon
we are taught the mixed character of
the kingdom and also of the ultimate
separation of 1 wm classes of which lt
is compo8.'i' "A man." v. 24, g'">s
out to sow gjod seed in his field. Tl t
man we are told la v. 37, is the Son
of Man, and elsewhere that the field
ls the world, the hearts of m.a. Then
followed the propagating 6tagp. that
period over which man has no con?
trol. Duri nu this period while men
ate and slept awaiting the time fi r
cultivation and of harvest, the enei:->*
of men's souls came and sowed tares,
the common elarnel which so closely
resembles wheat in Its earliest stages.
After this propagating period had
passed the man and his servants went
out one day to And in their field evi?
dence that another had also so * a
sered. The test of every life is .lie
fruit produced. During these earlier
stages the tares had looked so ne.-.rly
like the wheat as not to be readily
distinguished, but now that thu
vest time approaches the different; is
all too evident. It is significant li-iu
this parable that no blame lb laid
upon the servant a that they shoiild
have allowed the two to grow up mir?
ing this first stage. Surprise, anger
aud disappoint?eui stirred the liL..rta
oi the servants when they dlst-u.
the alined allara.ctec of the approach?
ing harvest. The master, however,
clean them of all blame, for, said he.
?"Our enemy hath done this." Not an
enemy, as the King James version has
lt. Satan ls ubiquitous, bu* the Son
of God ls greater than he, see I. Peter
Parablea He Taught.
If the servants had sought to up?
root the tares they would in all likely
hood have done more damage tb??
good, though this does not imply any
conflict with Jesus' words as found in
Matthew 5:29, ou. The seed bad the
same environment and in God's good
time the separatlou should take place.
So "let both grow together" uutil both
be fully developed. Then he will say
to ?? reapers, at the tare*
and burn them, but gather the wheat
Into my bara. Notice the tares did
not evolve into wheat. _ike begets
like. Gather in'o bundles is the
command. If wo alu 'ogether, we must
expect to Buffer together. The wheat
was ripe for full - jlvation, blessing
and a further uso: loess, while the
tares were ripe only tor destruction.
After tea??_g t. ese parables, of
which this is but one. Jesus seat the
xnultitu.'.c away ami more fully and
completely taught ?is disciples the
Inner meaning of this parable. The
field is the world, and ll' we ask we
abai1 have the heathen for our inherit?
ance and the uttermost part of the
world as a possession (Ps 1:8). The
good seed are the sons of the king?
dom, but the '.: .is are the a 19 tchil
r | dren) of the evil one. Beti]
t I of .the good and the sons of the bad
d j grow from, and develop out o' Bee*!,
t. i tie sons of the kingdom from the
We must remember the three I
sons we have been studying. T -
first coneerned tho nature oi tba E
and the soil: the second deals with
the mystery cf the growth a::.l devel?
opment of tne kingdom, whereas thia
lesson has to do with the mixed.
World the Field.
Aa the Psalmist puts it (1:5). "The
ungodly shall not stand in the i
ment, e. g., has no standing, nor
ners (abide) in the congregation o'
the righteous." It is not our plato
to gather the tares into bundles. God
will send forth rea; or- t v. 30) and his
reapers ure tbe angels iv. iii)). The
fact ls we are here warned against
useless or profUles activity. Ours is
to sow the right aeed and then stand
back and let Qc ! r.ot_, Wa are not
even responsible tot any process of
separation, for God will take care of
his own aud lu his cv, a time will
send forth his reapers who will do
what we would make sorry work
of attempting to do. How often
we see men zealously attempting the
separation process during the propa?
gating and developing period, only to
uproot the wheat with the darnel.
Evil, we are clearly shown, will not
gradually disappear from the world,
but on the cont rai y it will grow, de?
velop and bear along beside the whe.it
until "the harvest." After the harvest
lt will bo al) too Clear which is good
and which la bad. The language of
Jesus is graphic?"cast and fling" ex?
press indignation and contempt: "fur
nace of fire" denotes the fierceness of
the torment of punishment, and the
"gnashing of te-oih" and the "'wailing"
1s a terrible picture of anguish and
despair. As against this, he tells us
that the righteous shall shine fort
free from all cloud or shadow.
