My first reaction was, "I don't like it." It is busy, dangerous, frustrating and noisy. But then, while I waited through four light changes to get my turn at the intersection at Everhard and South Main, I though it over.
I grew up fishing in a deep lake near my house that had many many fish. I caught Bluegill, Perch, Pickerel and Large Mouth Bass. It was a rare day that I didn't catch fish. As an adult, however, I've fished in other deep lakes that didn't have so many fish and where I rarely caught any. Now where would I rather fish? You guessed it, no doubt. I like fishing where there are plenty of fish to catch.
Jesus called His disciples to follow Him and told them they would become "fishers of men."
So I looked at that traffic streaming by and I thought, "Praise God for all these people. Surely God has put us in a place where there will be good fishing for men."
