THE PARABLE OF THE NET…

Standard

 

The Parable of the Net

“Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake
and caught all kinds of fish.
When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore.
Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets,
but threw the bad away. This is how it will be at the end of the age.

The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

and throw them into the blazing furnace,
where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

Matthew 13:47-50

It’s Fine Today…

Trees and shrubs are often at their freshest, and there are more flowers during June than at any other time. 

 

It’s Fine Today

Sure, this world is full of trouble-
I ain’t said it ain’t.
Lord, I’ve had enough and double
Reason for complaint;
Rain and storm have come to fret me,
Skies are often gray;
Thorns and brambles have beset me
On the road – but say,
Ain’t it fine today?

What’s the use of always weepin’,
Making trouble last?
What’s the use of always keepin’
Thinkin’ of the past?
Each must have his tribulation –
Water with his wine;
Life, it ain’t no celebration,
Trouble? – I’ve had mine –
But today is fine!

It’s today that I am livin’,
Not a month ago.
Havin’; losin’; takin’; givin’;
As time wills it so.
Yesterday a cloud of sorrow
Fell across the way,
It may rain again tomorrow,
It may rain – but say,
Ain’t it fine today?
