Luke 5:6-11

Luk 5:6 When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets started to rip.
Luk 5:7 So they motioned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they were about to sink.
Luk 5:8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, because I am a sinful man!”
Luk 5:9 Because Peter and all who were with him were stunned at the catch of fish that they had taken,
Luk 5:10 and so were James and John, Zebedee’s sons, who were Simon’s work partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.”
Luk 5:11 So when they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.

responding to blessing

There are some people who get rich, and never give God another thought. But there are some who realise that the blessing came from God, and turn their lives and their wealth over for God to use. Their wealth becomes a means of directing their time and energy toward catching people for forever. Look around you. Are you blessed? Don’t waste it on yourself.

LORD, give us the wisdom to invest our wealth in your kingdom.
