Matthew 13:47-49 “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.”
The African fishermen saved every fish. They sold the good fish, and what they didn’t sell, their families ate. The bad fish were given to the hogs or goats to eat or used as fertilizer.
The Lord’s way is simple and straightforward. The fisherman will save the good fish and the bad fish will be thrown away.
The fisherman is symbolic of God. Believers are good fish. Unbelievers are bad.
Which one are you?
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.
