Kidz Corner: Fishing & Patience


Hi! My name is Harley, and this month our topic of “discussion” is fishing and patience.

We fish in the shining lake, which is in our backyard, very happily with our family and friends. All you have to do is buy a solid, sturdy fishing pole, fishing line, and a non-disgusting worm, and find an experienced fisherman and beg him to hook it up. Then you cast it into the lake, and perhaps, you will catch yourself saying, “Lo and behold, I caught a bass!” (I said catch, LOL) But most of the time, you will say, “Lo and behold, I caught a lily pad!” Then you are probably disappointed. What my dad would say is, “Let’s go to another lake!” I would say, “Let’s go home and eat Tostitos!” (I don’t like fishing and not catching anything. It is horrendous. But that is not the point.) If you have patience, after an hour or two, you might actually catch a fish!

Jesus is patient with us, and if we trust Him, it is TOTALLY worth it in the long run. Don’t give up on things that you are doing or otherwise haven’t even started. You just need to do it, and won’t it be awesome? Just remember: we do all things in God’s strength, not ours.
Bye! See ya next month!
