The tangle


Yesterday I was going to move onto the other side of the driveway and untangle the wisteria from the trees but I was already wet and getting cold so gave it a miss. Here it is twining its way up the pencil pine at the gatepost.

We lit a log fire last night to get warm.

Reflection:
This is the interpretation of the parable in yesterday's post.
Matthew 13:36-43 (New International Version)
His disciples came to him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field."
He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
"As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

  1. What about the possibility of redemption? Once evil, always evil?

  3. I reckon the word verification answers the question perfectly.
