"It's been a long night and I'm totally worn out. My hands ache; my muscles are tired; my clothes are soaked; and my nets are empty. Just leave me alone, I'm not in the mood, I'm done!"
I wonder if these were the thoughts that ran though Peter's mind that day when Jesus saw him along the shores of Gennesaret? Although Peter was working hard, he had little to show for it.
Our thought today comes from Luke 5:2-3: "And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship."
