Today Reminder - 08 August 2012 (The story of a fish part 3)

My prayer for you for today is that you will encounter God’s life in you, in Jesus name.

1 John 3:9
Those who have been born into God's family do not make a practice of sinning, because God's life is in them. So they can't keep on sinning, because they are children of God.

The story of a fish (Part 3)
Frightened and shivering the little fish stood in the living room of their little fish house listening to his father explaining the principles of the Bible. He knew now that the way he had acted was foolish and stupid and he felt sorry for how easily he had been misled by selfishness. 

The dawns early light broke through the waves and casted long creepy shadows over his wall. The little fish did not want to get out of bed, he did not want to face the day ahead.

The swim to fish school was a long swim but felt uncomfortably short this day. As he arrived at school he ducked away trying to escape the in-crowd. He took one friend at a time and asked for forgiveness and explained the errors of his ways. When trying to explain this to the in-crowd he was laughed at and mocked. 

Facing his friends and asking for forgiveness was tough and not an easy task but being forgiven takes away such a heavy burden of guilt and self-pity.

Although the little fish regained his old friends, he was sad. He was sad, because not all understood and not all of his friends were willing to forgive. This made the little fish sad and very unhappy, because some will see and understand with the life of a God in then and some will be blind to it.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
