Horses and Bows


(1) Thom 47:1



(1) Thom 47:1

/47/ Jesus said, "A person cannot mount two horses or bend two bows. /2/ And a slave cannot serve two masters, otherwise that slave will honor the one and offend the other. /3/ "Nobody drinks aged wine and immediately wants to drink young wine. /4/ Young wine is not poured into old wineskins, or they might break, and aged wine is not poured into a new wineskin, or it might spoil. /5/ An old patch is not sewn onto a new garment, since it would create a tear." [Complete Gospels]
