Evening: Psalm 37:19-42; Luke 5:1-11
Fishing for people never appealed to me. The song said we would become “fishers of men” if we followed Jesus. This did not persuade me to want to follow him – I would not want to be ‘caught’; nor, I thought, would others. But my imagination and heart, on the other hand, were captivated, even captured, by this mysterious man from Galilee. Now, he used his fishers metaphor to call fishermen. He may call an engineer to build bridges to people’s hearts; an artist, to colour the world; a mother, to give birth to truth. To what does Jesus call you?
