SIXTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (A)

GOOD NEWS!   Wis 12:13, 16–19 / Rom 8:26–27 / Mt 13:24–43 or 13:24–30


    When our children were small, my husband would periodically clean out my car. I always found his method interesting: Into a bag would go receipts, empty juice boxes, stray books, mittens, pens, loose change, and anything that would get in the way of vacuuming the floor.

    He made no distinction, collecting even things that were obvi- ously trash and could be thrown out. Then he’d bring me the bag to sort through. I used to laugh at him: “Really, you kept the empty soda can?”

    I’ve come to realize that his method of cleaning echoes today’s parable. Young shoots, whether wheat or weeds, look very much alike. What if, in our zeal to toss out weeds, we toss out wheat as well? Jesus tells us it’s better to wait until the end, when they look more like their true selves, and deal with them then.

    Perhaps there’s some final use for the juice box or the soda can before we throw it away. I find this a remarkably hopeful attitude. While we would always end up throwing out a lot, we occasionally uncovered treasures that would have been lost forever.

    Maybe building the kingdom of heaven is also like cleaning out a car.

    Whether field or car, I’d like to think that God watches over what he plants and carefully looks for new strains of wheat among the tried and true stalks.

    And in his mercy, God carefully examines all before he lets go of the weeds altogether.
