A Match Made in Heaven

on January 16, 2022

Matthew 4:19– “And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Someone asked how I keep thinking of Bible verses to use in my blog. Well, I said, “It’s easy. There are 31,101 of them!”

Another reader asked which I select first, the verse or the story/example? It happens both ways. For instance, yesterday, I was looking through some old photos. I came across one of my grandfather and myself holding up a nice-sized trout. How that man loved to fish!

My grandfather taught Sunday school. He was a living example of being a fisher of men. He preferred the boys in his Junior High class. “Catch them while they’re young and they’ll have a lifetime to live for Jesus,” he’d often say. 

He loved to tell stories. Boys loved hearing them. You could say it was a match made in Heaven.
