John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

A wealthy businessman was shocked to see a fisherman sitting beside his boat, playing with a small child. So the businessman asked, "Why aren't you out fishing?" The fisherman replied, "Because I've caught enough fish for one day." "Why don't you catch some more?" the businessman further inquired.

"What would I do with them?" asked the fisherman. "You could earn more money," said the businessman. "Then with the extra money, you could buy a bigger boat, go into deeper waters, and catch more fish. Then you would make enough money to buy nylon nets. With the nets, you could catch even more fish and make more money. With that money you could own two boats, maybe three boats. Eventually you could have a whole fleet of boats and be rich like me."

"Then what would I do?" replied the fisherman. "Then you could really enjoy life," answered the businessman. The fisherman looked at the businessman quizzically and asked, "What do you think I'm doing now?"

Let's not get so wrapped up in work, that we simply forget to enjoy life – the life that He wants to give us more abundantly! Take some time out this weekend and be sure to praise God for the life that He's provided.  Have a great weekend!

  1. BE SURE TO ENJOY LIFE is a small story but very relevant message. People need to learn to enjoy life but that would not happen without Lord Jesus Christ. it is a lasting lesson and I am really enjoying through ups and downs but with the help of the Lord.

  2. Thanks for such uplifting briefs. I really needed this at this particular time. I know that Almighty God is a Faithful Provider, he created this Vast Universe, He left Absolutely Nothing out. Everything serves its purpose. And God takes care of all who come to him by Faith. May God Richly Bless you and your Family as you continue to bless us with the Wisdom from Above.
