Bible Reading and Prayer
for Tuesday 28th July 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
Jesus Explains the Parable of the Weeds
Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples approached him, saying,
‘Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.’ He answered, ‘The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world, and the good seed are the children of the kingdom;
the weeds are the children of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the
harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are collected and
burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and
they will collect out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and they will throw them into
the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will
shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let anyone with ears listen!
Prayer for today
Creator God, you made us all in your image: may we discern you in all that we see, and serve you
in all that we do; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
