Last night, before I got ready to go to church, I was watching a movie, and noticed my son’s little bowl sitting on top of the counter. It had been sitting there a while, now full of coins, useful in its own little way, and I realized I hadn’t taken a picture of it yet to show off to all my social media friends what a wonderful job he had done. So, I picked it up, walked outside with it so I could find some decent light, and snapped a picture with my cell phone.
About a year ago, I watched a movie called Son of God. It was good. Maybe you’ve seen it. Towards the beginning of the movie, Jesus is talking to Peter on the Sea of Galilee. He was urging him to go fishing, but Peter kept insisting there were no fish. Jesus continued to talk, telling Peter basically trust him. Finally, Peter threw the net in the water, expecting nothing to happen, but it did. He pulled in net after net of fish, until he finally fell back against the mast of the boat, out of breath from the exertion of the haul.
