Separate the wheat from the chaff (Matthew 3:12)



Picture description:
Wheat
Picture copyright:V. Gilbert and Arlisle F. Beers
Bible Verse:
“His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
Meaning:
If you separate the wheat from the chaff, you separate things that are of a high standard from things that are of low quality.
Origin and Application:
Chaff is separated from grain during threshing. This expression became a metaphor in the Bible to represent separating wickedness or false doctrines from the truth. Chaff is figuratively used to stand for worthless matters.
Example:
Every year we pick our suppliers at the trade fair so that we can separate the wheat from the chaff.
Keywords :
wheat    chaff    separate    low quality    high quality
