She's Hooked

“A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.”  -Author Unknown

On a fishing trip in Iceland, my mother and eager novice fisherman connects a three-prong hook with feathers to her line and casts it into a blue horizon—but she misses the lake and instead catches her butt.  Our family laughs together all the way to the emergency room.  

As followers of Christ, like the fishermen who became Jesus’ disciples we are to become “fishers of men”—reeling people into the kingdom of God.

Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men (Matthew 4:19, NIV).
