Back In The Boat – Good News for February 16

16 02 2009

Mark 8:11-13

The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him. He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”

Then he left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore.

The Daily Path: There are many days when I just want to climb back into my little boat head off to another shore. Sometimes life’s pharisees get in your face and you realize you’ve had enough “bullogna” for one sitting. In those instances you can deal with it or you can go find some of the joy that God’s put in your life.

“Amen, I’m outta here. Go find yourself someone else to rile up.  God and me are going fishing.”

Room to Chat: Fishing is a great time to talk to God. You’re outdoors and there aren’t many interruptions… at least for most of us.
