The kingdom of heaven is like a net cast into the sea which catches all kinds of fish.
When its full, the fisherman hauls it ashore.
Then he sits down and sorts out the good fish
from the bad.
The good he keeps, the worthless he throws away.
In a sense, all of us are fishers.
Each day we cast our net into the sea of life.
And at the end of the day we have a catch,
Sometimes small, sometimes large.
May we take time to sift through that catch.
And may you, Lord, give us the wisdom to know
what to keep and what to throw away.
