Lures

In Matthew 11:17 Jesus said “Come after me and be My disciples, and I will make you to become fishers of men.”

Have you ever been fishing?  If not; you probably don’t know that fishermen use different bait or lures to catch different kinds of fish.   

As a “fisher” of men the Lord ask that we be an example in all areas of our life; like how we act and speak.

Some will respond to the way we act with love and grace while others will respond by hearing our joy and peace.

Cast that line and keep it tight.  Let’s go fishing! ~Debra  

 

A Fishing Story

July 1, 2012 — Leave a comment

A father and son left early on a Saturday morning to spend the day fishing.  They fished all day and caught nothing.  All day… and nothing!

When they returned home tired from their long day, each wrote down the events of the day.

The father wrote:  Went fishing with my son today.  Didn’t catch anything.  A whole day wasted.

The son wrote:  Went fishing with my dad.  We didn’t catch anything.  Best day of my life.

Isn’t it  funny how two people doing the same thing can have a  such different perspective? Time spent with a loved one can never be time wasted.

When is the last time you sat with your child and read a book?  Went to your parents and sat and talked about the events of the day.  Spent some time with your brother and or sister…or both!  Met up with an old friend.  Life is too short…take time and spend it with the ones you love!  Maybe a few you don’t…make amends. 

We have no promise of tomorrow, Love Heart, do it today!!  (1 Peter 1:24-25, NIV, John 10:28, NIV)~Deb
