Harvest Is Still Coming
Though tares threaten the harvest, the servants are restrained from going out and pulling up the tares and the tares are allowed to grow with the wheat but only for a specified time. The tares are allowed to grow with the wheat until harvest time. At harvest time, the tares must be removed first.
Tares have long been known to be harmful. They represent a detriment to the proper growth and harvesting of valuable wheat. Scholars have noted for us that the grain of the tare can cause dizziness and even death. It has a very similar appearance to that of wheat and has been used as a lesson of how the false can imitate the real while being destructive. But the harvest is still coming; it is still valuable. The Master still wants it, still plans for it, still uses it.
