Give a man a fish and you feed him for a
day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. ~Lao-Tzu~
No matter what your age, personal
history or station in life may be, there are always those that can benefit from
your experiences and what you have learned. Purpose to share and teach
those life lessons to others that they might learn and benefit from them…and
you just may find that the teacher becomes the real student!
Thought for the
Do you ever stop thinking about
yourself long enough to feel for others? Do you understand and accept the need
to help others as a major part of your recovery?
When will you start fishing?
Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your
souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
~Jesus / Matthew 11:28-30~
Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother
casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto
them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
~Mark 1:16, 17~
What we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have
fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and
with His Son Jesus Christ. This is the message we have heard from Him and
announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all…if
we walk in the Light, as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship
with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
~1 John 3, 5, 7 (NASB)~
