Fully allowing the "weeds" to grow together with the crops (people who behave well and who behave badly), is a message taught by God concerning how we who consider ourselves children of God are called to live harmoniously with others in this exquisite world He so lovingly created as good. Yet, he furthered this precept through Jesus by now calling all to actually love the "weeds," to love our enemies, or those very different from ourselves, who either bother us, disagree with us, offend us, or hate us - whoever "we" are. God personally demonstrates how we are to love the good and bad alike by unflinchingly showering rain and sun on both equally, lovingly, without partiality. Are we above God not to?
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl was shot in the head and neck by the Taliban, survived, and boldly advocates for the education of girls and women, and more recently, for peace. She met with President Barack Obama and told him to stop the deadly drone attacks on Pakistan. They are killing many innocent civilians, including children, and turning many ordinary people against the U.S. and onto the side of the Taliban, she said. She was also interviewed by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show who marveled at her bold peacemaking and wondered what he has been doing all of his life.
