Are Alarms Going Off In Your Life?

Fishing For a Friend?

The Independent reports:

"The fish friend program caught the imagination of the internet after radio producer Michelle Cook tweeted a picture of the fishbowl and sign. The caption read: “My friend is staying in a hotel in Belgium. They've offered her the option of renting a fish for the night, in case she's lonely.”

... Hotel manager David Dillon told The Independent that the fish rental service has been running for several years and is popular with guests.

He said: “We started a few years ago. The idea was to surprise our guests, as we always try to do.

“It’s brilliant to see how people react to it. They smile and take pictures to put on social media. We rent a few fish per week.”

There are a lot of ways to deal with the problem of loneliness. You can order a fish. Or, you can focus on trying to help someone else. Whatever might be said of Jesus' followers, one thing that should never be said is that they are lonely.

First, you’re never alone when you walk closely with Jesus. He is constantly by your side. Also, He  encourages you to seek and serve others. His promise to every follower is that He will make them fishers of men. So the next time you're feeling all alone, don't just hang out with a fish, go fishing!

Matthew 4:19

“Come, follow Me,” Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men".

I love you all,
