The owner of the field, who allowed the wheat and the darnel to grow together, is a reminder to us to be patient with ourselves and with others when we see everything is not right. Sometimes a preoccupation with the negative (the darnel) can blind us to seeing the positive in our own lives and in the lives of others. Have you ever found that it was through accepting the darnel that you learned important lessons for life, e.g., learning by making mistakes.
The parables of the mustard seed and the leaven are reminders that seemingly insignificant things can have very positive results.
