When Jesus explains the parable of the weeds, He reminds us that there is the potential for good and bad in each of us. What we choose today matters forever.

Am I prepared to choose well today? Have I taken the time to orient myself to good first? Am I able to triumph over the temptation to evil?

O gracious God, may I express my gratitude to You today by choosing good over evil. May my words and deeds mirror Your goodness.
