An older man lived alone. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who normally helped him, was in prison. During his usual correspondence with his son, the father wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament.

Shortly he received a reply, "Please Dad, don't dig up the garden. that's where I buried the evidence!"

At 4 A.M. the next morning, a dozen police appeared in the father's garden and began to dig up the entire garden, without finding any evidence.

Confused, the older man wrote another note to his son telling him what had occurred and asking for an explanation. His son replied, "Now plant your potatoes, Dad. It's the best I could do at this time." **********************************************************

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. -Matthew 13:24
