How about this Thanksgiving season we view the blessings of GOD as a catalyst to more service, ministry, usefulness and transformation, instead of isolated proof that GOD can provide what GOD has already secured. Jesus causing Simon to get the catch was the easy part. Now Jesus is calling Simon to leave the catch and do the greater thing! Serve.
Jesus' request involves sacrifice and maybe discomfort; requests of Jesus are centered on the other and not selfish. Jesus always gives us more than we had before he got on the Boat; let Jesus have your Boat!
