I brought my fishing net with me this morning, but I don’t think that I’m going to catch too many fish in here this morning. The floor appears to be much too dry. You know what I probably could catch with this net… people! See how easy it was for me to catch Rhett in my net?
Some of Jesus’ disciples were fisherman. It was their job to catch fish until they met him. Jesus taught them instead to “fish” for people. He used it as an example of how he could go about spreading the good news of God’s love. So they continued to gather up more people to teach and then each of those people could dip his/her own fishing net into the water to gather and teach more.
I have my fishing net that I used to teach you today and you can each carry on telling people about how important they are to God.
