IS THERE A DESTINATION IN MIND?
John 21:3 Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.” They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing
In today’s text, Peter tells the other disciples ‘I am going fishing’ and the chorus response was ‘we will go with you’. Some of the number who responded were fishermen but one question comes to mind ‘in that moment, did they really all have to go fishing?’
It comes to our attention then that purpose and vision are important. However, while we might share in the purpose of others, to what extent do we pursue our very own? It becomes easier to align with others when we know where we want to go ourselves so that we are not steered along deviated paths.
Here is a simplified summary ‘If you don’t stand for something, you fall for everything and if you have no destination, everywhere will look like the perfect stop and everyone will seem like the ideal companion.
