The Tares and The Wheat

This morning I have been studying the above parable in Matthew 13: 24-30.  One of the first things it has brought to mind is a lesson in my art class on negative and positive space.  Both are needed for clarity.  The negative space is that space which surrounds the item or items that I am painting or drawing.  It is neither Good nor evil but to me represents the unreal while the actual painting is the real.

Matthew 13:30 states, “Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers,  ‘First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.'”
