    I found Luke 5:39 interesting – – ” …no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.’ ” Was Jesus speaking of the Pharisees and those who follow the Old Testament?

  2. PeterCard says:

    Luke 5:4-6 and Luke 5:10, provides some basic wisdom to be successful at fishing. Jesus asked Simon to go fish in deep waters, but Simon had fished all night and got nowhere. He seemed to hesitate but followed the masters advice and they caught more than they could handle. It always pays to follow the Masters advice. Then in verse 10 he tells His followers not to be afraid, now you will catch men. Many of us have tried to fish for men that were not yet ready, no need to be afraid He will reveal to us where the harvest field is plentiful and we will catch men.
