Commentary on the Gospel of
Blessed are those who listen… We find today Jesus explaining the parable of the weeds with some eerie language. Jesus appeals to apocalyptic drama to express his message: the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. The righteous here are those who decidedly accepted the ways of the kingdom; those who effectively listen to the word of God. These are the people who overcame the notoriousness of human logic and learned from divine wisdom. These are the people, the good seed of the kingdom that can truly effect transformation. These are the people that make the kingdom of God shine.
