Gospel: Luke 5:1-11
“from now on you will be catching men”
How humbling it was for Peter (a fisherman) to be told by Jesus (a carpenter) what to do. Yet this seems to be our tendency. How many times we too feel we know better and we find it hard to trust God. How long before we can really realize, God’s ways our not ours. Sometimes, even his call for our lives to be fishers’ of people, we don’t take seriously because we don’t think we are qualified. Maybe it’s time we listen well to what he’s asking us to do then maybe our world will be a better place.
