“Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool, where you least expect it, there will be a fish.” -Ovid
Peter was a fisherman whom hadn’t caught a fish the entire day. Jesus, who he did not yet know, approached him on the shore to encourage him to go deeper into the water to cast his nets. He took a chance on Jesus, and sure enough, his nets became filled with fish. It’d have been all too easy for Peter to talk himself out of exploring this opportunity, because he believed there was little chance he’d succeed. Peter’s lesson is true for us: we have to take chances in life to really experience the fullness of God’s favor. Look for an opportunity that you might otherwise pass by and take a chance on it.
Make the most of every opportunity… (Eph. 5:16, NLT).
