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