Gospel: Luke 5:1-11
Reading this Sunday’s gospel, I am challenged by the words “Put out into the deep.” The fishermen had been working all through the night and all seemed to be fruitless. Then Jesus said, “Put out into the deep.” Wow! What a surprise they beheld -- A catch of fish to the point of nets breaking. Sometimes it feels that way in my own life. I keep trying to be kind, caring, respectful, loving and it feels like nothing is happening. Perhaps the challenge is to “go out into the deep!” What could be the deep for me?
I believe these are some of the deeps God is inviting me to explore. How about you? Have you heard an invitation from God to “Go out into the deep” lately? May we listen gently and carefully this week as we dare to enter into the deep.
