“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his
field;but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat,
and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared
also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, `Sir, did you not
sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’ He said to them, `An enemy
has done this.’ The servants said to him, `Then do you want us to go and gather
them?’ But he said, `No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along
with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will
tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned,
but gather the wheat into my barn.'” – Matthew 13:26-30
