// 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]

Kingdom work is a gathering work not scattering. So the gathering effect is by linking with the other holes in the net. You alone cannot be a net, you will be losing catches, you need network. Operating as individual hooks will not produce the effect of the net. You need integration, synergy, and network with others to catch not only fishes but big fishes. Net is not useful on ground but where fishes are, release yourself to bring souls to the kingdom of God.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to be useful as part of your nets.
