My Thoughts on Today's Bible Reading

Interesting that Jesus saw good fish as fish meant to be eaten and bad fish the ones released back into the sea. I wonder if there's any meaning behind this...

Anyway, in both readings we see that the clay gets molded according to the potter's wishes and the fish gets chosen according to the angels' criteria. Neither the clay nor the fish has nay say in how it's molded or how they're chosen. In other words, God's will trumps all (I assume the criteria with which the angels pick and chose matches God's will for those that are sorted out). Luckily we have a God who is as loving as He is just, who reaches out to us as much as we yearn for Him.

What about the business of "the new and the old"? I believe it means that people who are wise in the ways of God know how to pick and choose between old traditions and new ways, to keep what is good and change what is not so good. Never forget though that God knows best, so always ask Him for the courage to change what must be changed, the serenity to accept what cannot be changed, and the wisdom to know the difference between the two.
