A Lesson From a Fisherman

Lessons from a fisherman: How dirty are your boots?

A man called out to me from a fishing spot, "Who are you? I'd not seen you fishing here before. Why do you still look clean? Come on, get your boots on and get over here where the fish are!

That moment changed everything with my ministry perspectives. I was reminded of a Missional Incarnation when the Word became flesh and lived among us. (John 1:14.)

If we want to become fishers of men, we must go where the people are regardless how unfavorable the circumstance is. We may smell stinky and get our boots dirty but chances are we may catch a lot of people for the Kingdom of Heaven.

The following day, I took the man's advice to put my boots on and went fishing in the spot where most people would avoid. I got my boots dirty and I caught some fish (Since then I've had opportunities meeting with many people that I had not before.)  I am reminded everyday that our Missional Incarnation must be willing to get our boots dirty for the sake of drawing our net of people into the Kingdom of God.  Blessed are those who take this into practice.

The model measure I byword Gail Dines stand up for, at a colloquy in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her characterization of the problems caused nearby dirt, and provoked sniggering with her spicy observations near pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the conclusion – sundry of whom had never viewed obscenity as a disturbed in the vanguard – queued up afterwards to pawn their support. The display highlighted Dines's iffy charisma and the fact that, since the undoing of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most scabrous and spellbinding of public roles: the community's cardinal anti-pornography campaigner.
