Good Fish Bad Fish

A guide to living the GOOD, eternal, abundant and fulfilled life. What is a good fish or a bad fish? Jesus told a little story that is packed with life, but often overlooked. This story can help us to examine ourselves and see who we are, where we are headed and how we can live a life that is higher than what most are experiencing in the ordinary world around us. There is a way to live that is free, full and meaningful. But while this way of life is available and free, it is not automatic. You and I must make a choice to live not just for God, but also in Him. In responding to His love and all He has done for us, you will experience what the Bible calls both abundant and eternal life. This is the transformative message of Good Fish Bad Fish.

Chapter 2 Very Important Fish
"The greatest disease in the West today is not TB (Tuberculosis) or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved and uncared for." 1
- Mother Teresa Once my wife Melanie and I went to a Christian conference at the Fort Worth Convention Center. There were thousands of people at the meeting and it was being televised. We were looking for a seat as the meeting was beginning. An usher told us to follow him, and he led us through the aisle of pastors and ministers up towards the front. I thought, 'Wow! This guy must think we are someone else,' as we headed to the reserved seating area. He stopped and pointed to two seats on the very front row next to several ministry leaders that were affecting the whole world. I was not about to awkwardly correct his apparent mistake! We just smiled and thanked him. My parents had been attending that ministry's meetings for over twenty years, and were sitting in the balcony, having never been to the front row before. We got the "very important persons" treatment, and did not mind one bit. It was a bit surreal to be sitting with no one in front of us. When the speaker was preaching, he got fired up and headed in our direction. As he stood right in front of me, we locked eyes and then he tapped my chest with his pointer finger. I actually flinched when he did. It is safe to say that being in that VIP position prompted us to pay very close attention to everything being said that night. VIF Did you know that in the eyes of God, you are a VIP? Or to stay within Jesus' illustration of the fishing net, you could say, "He considers you a very important fish !" God really does love you, and He has a wonderful plan for your life. You may have heard that before, but it is not an empty cliché from a sentimental Instagram post. God's Word guarantees this is true. Consider the words of the psalmist who wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit when he said, "How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!" (Psalms 139:17). Our kids are now young adults. Over the years, we spent many hours going to their high school to watch them perform. Christopher plays the trumpet, and so we always found the time in our schedules to go to his halftime performances at football games and seasonal concerts. On each occasion we arrived in the auditorium for a band performance, we would scan the arrangement of instruments to see where he was seated. We would then make our way through the hundreds of parents to find a good seat. You may be wondering, "What was a good seat?" A good seat was where we could see Chris the best. While there were hundreds of people in the room, we were there for our son. He is our VIP! He graduated this past year, and what once determined our schedule no longer does. We have not been to one high school football game or concert since. We were never there for the entertainment. We were there to celebrate our son, witness his accomplishments, and cheer him on in his expression of interests. Jesus looks on you the same way. Love Cannot Sit Still God is love and He loves you, but many have never felt this love because their lives have been caught up in a convoluted mess of sin's consequences. Sin is the problem. Ever since the first man, Adam, it is everyone's problem. Adam chose to sin, but his children were born sinners. "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard" (Romans 3:23). When we agree to sin, it hardens our hearts toward God and gives the devil an inroad into our lives. The devil's influence will always bring destruction to ruin your life and steal God's best from you. That is why the Bible says, "For the wages of sin is
