LEARN ABOUT NEW THINGS
Jesus Christ gives us wisdom so we can make the best use of both old and new.
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In today's Gospel from Matthew, Jesus warns the disciples about the problem of the "closed mind" that refuses to learn new things. Jesus as always - used an image familiar to his followers - new and old wineskins. What did Jesus mean by this comparison? Are we to reject the old in place of the new? Just as there is a right place and a right time for fasting and for feasting, so there is a right place for the old as well as the new. Jesus Christ gives us wisdom so we can make the best use of both old and new. He doesn't want us to hold rigidly to the past and to be resistant to the new work that comes from God in our lives. He wants our minds and hearts to be like new wine skins - open and ready to receive the new rich wine of the Holy Spirit!
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Our challenge is, are we eager to grow in the knowledge and understanding of God's word and plan in life? Are we ready to let our faith in Jesus change us?
