Today Reminder - 06 August 2012 (The story of a fish

My prayer for you for today is that you will do what is right, in Jesus name.

1 John 2:29
Since we know that Christ is righteous, we also know that all who do what is right are God's children.

The story of a fish (Part 1)

Once upon a time long, long ago when fish was not so tasty and yes they could talk, there lived a little fish with his mom and his dad. This little fish was just an ordinary little fish. He couldn’t swim very fast nor was he big and strong, in fact he was quite a tiny little fish and was often made fun of. Yet he was not troubled by it, because he knew a fish is only as strong as what is inside him. 

One day on his way to school he came across two little yellow fish hiding behind a rock. “What is wrong?” the little fish asked. Frightened the two little yellow fish jumped as he spoke behind them. He could almost taste the fear in their little fish hearts as they shivered when they uttered the word “Shark” 

Suddenly a dark shadow moved over them and the little fish knew that this is the shark, a very dangerous and nasty one. He knew he could easily slip away and go home, but this meant leaving those two frightened little yellow fish all by themselves. He also knew that alone he stood a chance but the three of them would be a much easier target. The little fish remembered his father’s words: “If Jesus is with you my son, you can do anything“. The little fish told the two yellow fish how to get to his home and then he swam out into open water where the shark could easily see him. He shivered as the cold ocean water started to creep up into his warm little fish body. For a moment he thought he saw a shadow, but is must’ve been the waves. It seemed as if time stood still for that brief moment as he saw the shark coming out of nowhere, rushing to catch him. His little heart pounded in his chest as the seconds went by almost too slow to count. The little fish suddenly dived straight down as the shark did not waste a second to follow him and they rushed through the cold water deeper into the dark ocean.

Suddenly he was alone. The ocean gently flowing as if nothing happened and slowly letting the sun’s rays break through the darkness to reveal a shark stuck in a cave. The little fish grew up in these waters and knew the shark would follow him disregarding the environment and focussing on catching him only. In his haste he would not notice the narrowing ocean walls as they dived deep into an ocean cave. 

He knew he would be safe if he listened to his heart and did what is right.

What will your choice be today?

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
