Two preachers and a deacon decided to go fishing. The deacon looked up to these men of God, thinking that they were so holy that they could walk on water. They gathered at the lake and shoved off from the shore in the boat. When they arrived at the middle of the lake, one pastor asked the other, "Where's the bait?" The other pastor said that he didn't bring any, and the deacon replied the same. "That's okay," the first pastor said, "I'll just walk over there to the bait shop and buy some worms." He then stepped out of the boat and walked across the lake to the little store, bought some worms, and returned, walking on the
lake. "Wow," thought the deacon, "he really can walk on water. I hope to have faith like that some day."
Later, the other pastor asked if anyone was thirsty. They both replied with a yes. "I'll be right back with something for us all to drink." He stepped out of the boat and walked across the water to the store and returned with drinks for everyone. The deacon again thought, "Wow, I hope to have faith like that some day." As he fished, the deacon thought much about his faith. He then jumped to his feet, informing the two pastors that he was going for some snacks and he'd be right back. He stepped over the boat and sunk to the bottom. As he came up gasping for air, the one pastor said to the other, "Should we tell him where the rocks are?"
“Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways.” Prov 8:32
Those rocks in the story represent opportunities given to us. We have opportunities to make a big difference in the lives of kids that come to our church. We are having a great night of Pinewood Derby car racing on Friday, March 31. But that’s not all we’re doing that night. That night is about fellowship, and outreach, but it’s also for raising funds for R.A. Camp. Everyone is invited and everyone can come have a good time and take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in a boy’s life by helping him attend R.A. Camp. You can also help us determine the best and fastest looking cars. You will vote by donation and the car with the most money donated will win. Or, you can support the campers by just eating with us and making a donation at the table. Many of us could share a camp experience that provided the environment and opportunity for God to do a major work in our lives. Help us help get these boys to camp. Thanks for all your help.
