The American society definitely has a problem with the ambition to gain material things. The best illustration of this, in my opinion, is that stupid Jessica Simpson commercial that ends with her acknowledging that she doesn’t know what some technical terms mean that describe some new TV enhancement technology. So in spite of not knowing she still says “but I want it.” This is so typical of the “keeping up with the Jones’” mentality. The rich man that approached Jesus obviously had idolatry in his riches. Now I ask, is there such a missionary that lives in a comfortable society? Is there such a missionary that attempts to reach the comfortably lost in subtle ways in non-third world countries? Does this missionary refrain from radical demonstrations and approach the spiritually ignorant in natural and strategic demonstrations of love? I dare say yes for I will attempt to live my life this way unless God instructs me otherwise. In line with the fishing analogy, here is one I just thought of. Instead of storming down the dock at daybreak, the wise and successful fisherman tries not to spook the fish he/she is after. The commotion occurs once the fish realizes its caught. There’s many ways to entertain this analogy from this point forward, but unnecessary for my intentions. I praise God for the AIM ministry and support it financially. I also recognize that God’s love is not limited to any demographic region of the world. So my invitation to all followers of Jesus is – let’s go fishing! Anywhere and everywhere there is a body of water inhabited by fish. Let’s go fishing! 2/3 of the Earth is made up of water. There’s likely to be a fishing hole near you.
