- Solomon could ask anything of God
- Good and bad seed
The master in today’s parable of the wheat and the darnel is extremely patient (Matthew 13:24-43). The quick solution isn’t the one the Master takes. He waits to the end for harvest time. God waits patiently for each of us to respond to his call. Let us respond today with a yes, Read more →
