Weeds Be Gone
April showers bring May flowers, green grass. . . and weeds! The dandelions' beautiful yellow flowers quickly turn into not-so-pretty seed heads. As the wind scatters the seeds, the intrusive plants spread far and wide and are very difficult to control.
"'Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?' He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' So 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 13:24-30).
