CHRIST The Only Way
Fishing, A Way of Life
-- the good, the bad, and the ugly --
And he saith unto them, Follow me,
and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
The beauty of God's creation is evident!
A fisherman enjoys the view.
A wise man will hear, and will increase
learning; and a man of understanding
shall attain unto wise counsels.
Sometimes the catch is good...
Then shalt thou understand the
fear of the LORD, and find the
knowledge of God.
For the LORD giveth wisdom:
out of his mouth cometh
knowledge and understanding.
She is more precious than rubies: and all
the things thou canst desire are not
to be compared unto her.
And he said unto them, Cast the net on
the right side of the ship, and ye shall find.
They cast therefore, and now they were not
able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich,
and he addeth no sorrow with it.
Better is little with the fear of the LORD
than great treasure and trouble therewith.
The fear of the LORD is the instruction
of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
He that keepeth the commandment
keepeth his own soul; but he that
despiseth his ways shall die.
Behold, the LORD will carry thee
away with a mighty captivity,
and will surely cover thee.
So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and
thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
and sometimes the catch
is not too good...
Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing.
They say unto him, We also go with thee.
They went forth, and entered into a ship
immediately; and that night
they caught nothing.
Better is the poor that walketh in his
integrity, than he that is perverse
in his lips, and is a fool.
Sometimes a fisherman has to
find other things to catch...
Be not wise in thine own eyes:
fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
He becometh poor that dealeth with
a slack hand: but the hand of
the diligent maketh rich.
Time to look for the shrimp again;
call some friends to help
find the school!
Hear; for I will speak of
excellent things; and the opening of
my lips shall be right things.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
I see them.
Let's go, boys!
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth
unto the LORD; and that which he
hath given will he pay him again.
There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD,
that shall stand.
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:
bind them about thy neck; write them
upon the table of thine heart.
The rich man's wealth is his strong city,
and as an high wall in his own conceit.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
Fishermen aren't the only ones
that look for shrimp to eat.
Dolphins, and birds of many types, follow the boats looking for a meal.
A soft answer turneth away wrath:
but grievous words stir up anger.
Receive my instruction, and not silver;
and knowledge rather than choice gold.
The eyes of the LORD are in every place,
beholding the evil and the good.
For whoso findeth me findeth life,
and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride,
and arrogancy, and the evil way,
and the froward mouth, do I hate.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing:
but the honour of kings is to
search out a matter.
-- getting late --
birds are going to roost
For so the LORD said unto me, I will
take my rest, and I will consider in my
dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs,
and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
The LORD by wisdom hath founded
the earth; by understanding hath
he established the heavens.
If thine enemy be hungry, give him
bread to eat; and if he be thirsty,
give him water to drink.
When thou liest down, thou shalt
not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down,
and thy sleep shall be sweet.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Drop the anchor
and get some rest!
And in that day there shall be a root
of Jesse, which shall stand for an
ensign of the people; to it shall
the Gentiles seek: and his rest
shall be glorious.
