Day 37, February 6 - John 21

Click here for today's reading

1 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: 2 Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. 3 “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

5 He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

It's easy to criticize Peter. Jesus appeared to him and the other disciples after seeing him die on the cross and the next thing he does is go fishing. Yet how many times have I have I seen a miracle and the next thing I'm back to the mundane of life. Just like Peter Jesus is there to lead us to the best.
