Go Fish

imageI’m reading this wonderful book, The Circle Maker, by Mark Batterson.

This morning he’s recounting the time when Jesus and his disciples were in Capernaum and they were asked for the temple tax.

Jesus told Peter to go fishing!  What?  Yep, to go fishing and the first fish he caught he was too look it’s mouth and he would find four-drachma.  He was to use this to pay the taxes.

If I was Peter, I would probably thinking, uh…I’m  a professional fisherman and I’ve never caught one with four drachma in it before.

Long story short, if you’ve caught thousands of fish in your life time, how do you have faith to believe the next one will have a coin in it?  How do you know that God will keep his promise?  “Obey the crazy prompting!”
