Where did suffering originate?

Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. ” (Matthew 13:24-28 NIV)

Where did suffering originate?  In the parable of the weeds (tares), Jesus said an enemy sowed the seeds of evil.  Who is this enemy of Christ?  I believe Jesus is talking about Satan, also known as the devil, the serpent, the dragon, etc.  He is the father of lies.  He sows seeds of discontent, violence, hatred, etc.  Tomorrow we will discuss how Satan was created. Was he created to be evil?
