// Read: Matthew 13:44-52 //
44 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure a man discovered in a field. In his excitement, he sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field—and get the treasure, too!

45 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a pearl merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. 46 He discovered a real bargain—a pearl of great value—and sold everything he owned to purchase it!

47-48 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by a fisherman—he casts a net into the water and gathers in fish of every kind, valuable and worthless. When the net is full, he drags it up onto the beach and sits down and sorts out the edible ones into crates and throws the others away. 49 That is the way it will be at the end of the world—the angels will come and separate the wicked people from the godly, 50 casting the wicked into the fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51 Do you understand?”

“Yes,” they said, “we do.”

52 Then he added, “Those experts in Jewish law who are now my disciples have double treasures—from the Old Testament as well as from the New!”[a]

You alone as a hole will be losing catches just as we said yesterday; you need a network of holes. Also, there is the need to understand that the gathering of fishes attracts all kinds. It is not one kind of fish but every kind i.e. the same habitat but of different habits. So there is a need for separation; but separation cannot be done by the net but by the owner of the net (verse 48). You are either a part of the net, a fish or you belong to other kind (Spirogyra, toad, broken bottle, all kinds of rubbish) and the angels will separate at the end of the world. Be sure you are a fish net because every kind has no place in God’s Kingdom.

PRAYER: Ask God to make you a fisher of men
