Luke 5:1-16

By the end, Simon had it right. Wow, this passage really registered with me today. Here I was reading about how Simon interacted with Jesus, but it really brought my relationship with the Lord to mind.

Too many times I've found myself acting just like Simon. I know the Lord has something for me to do but I question, I postpone acting, maybe even argue a little before I actually get with the program and do whatever it is the Lord wants me to do. Then, just like in our passage, I'm surprised when what I've done turns out way better than I ever imagined (go figure). It's at that point that I, just like Simon, have to step back and ask for forgiveness for my sinful, disobedient attitude. Not particularly a fun thing, but thankfully, God is always right there to forgive me AND to graciously give me another opportunity to serve Him. (Thank you, Lord!)

Now I'm guessing we've all had a few "Simon experiences." So let's make it our goal to lessen the number of these occurrences. How might we go about accomplishing that? How about sharing something that's worked for you? Tami W.

Because of our sinfull nature, we have a hard time to reconize God's Voice. The more we sin the harder it is to hear. We have God's word now in the Holy Bible. We have an advantage that they didn't have then. We are all pretty much litterate and can read and study God's Word. I also feel that the easy acess we have today to Read and Research God's Word has also made us lazy too. It was a responsibility for the head of house hold and his wife to teach and pass down the Knowledge. It is still and should be an impearative to continue this practice as christian dicipalship today. We have to relay the importance of reading and meditating as a family on Gods Word. Studing today's lesson brought out my short comming in my household. I need to chang this so that the grandkids that I am raising will understand the importance of God's Word and in doing so their ears will be more open to hear.


I agree with you. We need to spend more time in the household teaching our kids about the word of God. We all get to busy with the everyday things we do. If we do not do it now our kids will not understand how to seek help when times get hard.
