Fish or How to Fish

Which do you prefer, fish or how to fish? It is better you’re taught how to fish than given fish. If most of us ask for something like money or favour from another person and we are not given, it normally pains us. We’re not sure may be what the person has in mind is to teach us how to get things done ourselves.

In the process of teaching us how to fish, don’t forget you will have access to as many fishes as possible.

Acts 3:6
“Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”

Peter himself had been taught how to fish by Jesus. He had been taught how to get things done on his own.

John 21:6
“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.”

If Jesus did give them fish to eat, instead of teaching them how to do it successfully on their own, it wouldn’t last long. Instead of a moment sustenance, he gave them long lasting breakthrough and experience.

      1. That’s right. Do take care of yourself. With agape love from Peter. I’m happy knowing you and your blog! Notwithstanding, if you don’t:t see me often, it may be because of all other blogs, but I will try my best to once in a while visit. You can also help by prompting me.

  1. Nice post.

    Learning how to fish is more beneficial…. I personally, finds it difficult to ask someone of something. & before doing so….. I undergo lots of practice on how to phrase my sentence…..

    Am I even making any sense…lol

  2. Many a times, we give up the great for the good. Many of us are impatient to wait for delayed gratification. Having the fish now , is what our mouths savor- It is what our yearnings crave – a gift for only this moment. Training our hands to fish is the gift that keeps on giving. Amazing post!

    1. Delayed gratification! That’s just it, many of us want everything now. It is time that builds and it is time that makes. Thanks for your positive and immense contribution. I do appreciate it. Enjoy your days!
