Good Morning Friends!
In Matthew (4:19) Jesus told Peter and his brother Andrew to follow Him and He would make them 'fishers of men.'
We know these two were (what we'd term today) commercial fishermen. That is, they fished for a living.
But on this particular day they'd toiled all night and caught nothing and were just rolling up their nets when Jesus came along and asked them to take him out in the water so He could teach the huge crowd clamoring about Him on shore. After His sermon, He instructed the two gentlemen to cast their nets, and they hauled in so many fish, their nets nearly broke!
Since man figured out how to catch, clean and cook, fishing has been both a necessity and for several years now, a sport.
I love to fish...there is just something about being on the water, with a pole or rod and reel, pulling in those delicious Bass and White Perch. Even Bream fishing can be fun.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit Toledo Bend Lake again and do a lot of fishing. The weather was beautiful, the water at times choppy, mostly smooth and calm.
Unfortunately the fish weren't really in the biting mood.
Still we had a blast and proved once again the old adage..... A bad day of fishing beats the best day of work!
If you've never enjoyed this pastime, give it a try. It may not be your 'thing' but then again, you might just find a brand new hobby.
Something to think about.
