This is it! This is what I’ve been waiting for.
A fish story!
Jesus got into a fishing boat, so there’s gotta be fish around. Right?
Okay, I’ll listen. But can I have some fish treats to munch on while I’m listening?
People eat popcorn at the movies. Shouldn’t dogs be allowed some treats when they hear stories?
Jesus was standing by the Sea of Galilee and people were crowding around him and listening to him teach about the word of God. There were two fishing boats there and the fishermen were nearby washing their nets. So Jesus got into the boat belonging to Simon and asked him to put out a little from shore, and he taught the people from the boat.
I wish I had been there. I could have gone swimming right up to that boat. Were there any fish in it?
I am listening.
When Jesus had finished speaking he told Simon to put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.
But Simon said they’d been working hard all night and hadn’t caught anything.
Oh, so there weren’t any fish in that boat. I’m jumping out and swimming back to shore.
Because Jesus had told Simon to let down his nets, he did it. And when they did, they caught so many fish that their nets began to break. They had to signal their partners, James and John, to bring their boat over to help them. They filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
Guess I’d better swim back and help those boats out now.
I am listening. What did you think I was doing?
Simon Peter fell on his knees and said, “Go away from me Lord; I am a sinful man!” because he and his companions were astonished at all the fish they had caught.
But Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Don’t be afraid. From now on you will be fishers of men.”
And they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed Jesus.
They left their boats full of fish there? Woo woo! I’m staying with the boats!

Well, Bongo, I’m sure they had plenty of fish for they road!!!

Marina, I guess they had so many fish they could take some along and still have a bunch left in the boat. What did you say, person? James and John left their father with the boat? You mean I have to sweet talk him in order to get some of those fish?

Mollie and Alfie, you will both love fish. I don’t get it very often, but it sure is good.

There seems to be a food theme in these Sunday tales – you sure know your audience!

Thanks. Food is what I live for. That and lots of loves. And naps. And walks on my trails.

Jesus is very sweet to help Simon Peter to get so many fish! I’m sure he will be coming to you to let you have lots of fish someday Bongo! *whispers* if you get them, please call me and I’ll come over there! 🙂

Kevin, I’ll for sure invite you over to eat fish with me. We can have a fish party.
February 25, 2013 at 10:00 am
More fish for you! Maybe you should hang out with Jesus more often. Like when He’s splitting up the little fish for everybody and there’s plenty of leftovers. You’d really like that!
February 25, 2013 at 3:26 pm
Flea, that’s a great idea. I’m gonna go follow after Jesus right now.
