Luke 5:4 4 And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” (ESV) We learn from this narrative the necessity of human activity. The catch of fish was miraculous, but neither the fisherman nor his boat nor his fishing tackle were ignored; they were all were used to take the fish.

Jude 16-19 16 These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own sinful desires; they are loud-mouthed boasters, showing favoritism to gain advantage. A Call to Persevere 17 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. 18 They[a] said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” 19 It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.

Read: Job 19:1-21 | Bible in a Year: Isaiah 28–29; Philippians 3 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Job 42:5 My friend Meaghan is an accomplished equestrian, and I’ve been learning some interesting things about horses from her. For instance, despite having the largest eyes of all land mammals, horses have poor eyesight and can see fewer colors than humans. Because of this, they can’t always identify objects on the ground.

Numbers 11:11 11 Moses said to the Lord, “Why have you dealt ill with your servant? And why have I not found favor in your sight, that you lay the burden of all this people on me? (ESV) Our heavenly Father sends us frequent troubles to test our faith. If our faith is worth anything, it will stand the test.

It is a poor faith that can only trust God when friends are true, the body is healthy, and the business
