The parable of the weeds is another easy to understand parable. It deals with God's righteous judgment at the end of this age. We can say that this parable is very similar to the parable of the sower, only that things are now seen on a much larger scale. The parable of the sower describes how each seed germinates in the life of a believer to produce more seeds. This particular parable looks at the exact same scenario through a wider set of lens. The parable of the sower deals with things at a personal level, whereas this parable looks at the global scenario. Therefore, where we had soil we now have an entire field. In the last parable, the enemy plucked the seed out of the lives of those who did not understand the message. This represents how the devil can blind people from understanding the gospel. Here, we see that the devil has taken a different approach. He understands that the seeds have already germinated and it is only a matter of time before the field is ready for harvest. So now he sows his own seed among the good seed. This represents the "sons of the evil one" that coexist with the sons of the kingdom . The Lord uses the parable to draw a exact picture of what is happening in the world today. The sons of the evil one are so close to the sons of the kingdom that both are in each other's sphere of influence. For this reason, God cannot exercise his full judgement without harming the righteous along with the wicked. The parable teaches us that the divine restraint from wrath is only momentary and that it will soon come to an end. We can be sure of a day of judgment when the righteous will be separated from the wicked. The righteous will then "shine like the sun in the kingdom of their father", while the wicked will be thrown into the "fiery furnace.
