All of us have seen evil in the lives of people, in society, and in the world. We have also likely seen injustice take place, where evil is not punished or put in check. There is so much corruption in the lives of people and also in different spheres of society. Why is this so? Many get discouraged and lose hope because evil is so prevalent in society.

Sadly, righteousness in society is not always rewarded and those who live their lives reflecting God’s righteousness are even persecuted. Why does God not bring immediate judgment on wickedness?

As we study Jesus’ parable of the weeds, we will find the answers to these questions.
