Reading: Mark 1: 17
I don't have much experience when it comes to fishing. My grandfather took me fishing once as a child and I did manage to catch quite a few fish, but I them all back into the pond. When I was a camp counselor, I had fishing camp one year. I went to several places with the boys but I did not cast a line. I just watched from the shore. I was not into the fishing thing.
Even though I am not an avid fisherman, I am a fisherman of sorts. As Jesus said, if we follow Him, we should be fishers of people. We should lead others to Jesus. I like to think that when others look at the way I live my life and see my personality and disposition that they will wonder what I have in life that they don't have. Maybe they will want to become more like me and try to live a good and godly life in Christ. Others may go out and try to cast nets by witnessing to others and preaching God's word. Whatever method we use, we should be fishers of people! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Pray to God for help in fishing for people.
