Luke 5:33-39:

The Pharisees call attention to the difference between their piety and practices and those of John the Baptist, Jesus and his disciples. Jesus responds very logically and practically. New ways cannot be bound by the old. Clinging to the past for the sake of it leads to stagnancy and decay. Jesus brings the way of life that must be listened to anew.

I am often reluctant to try new things and think in new ways. I have been guilty of rejecting people because they bring new ideas. I pray to be more flexible, open and willing to explore and accept the new.
