Easter 3, Year C

Whatever is in our nets in our lives is what Jesus wants. Whether it’s good large fish, or puny broken ones. Groupers or guppies, it doesn’t matter. The quality isn’t important, either. Jesus asks us to bring whatever we have – not to go down to the local seafood shop and get perfect fish. Whatever we have is enough – and good enough – if we bring it to God. We will pray   later on in our service, “Give us this day our daily bread.” And Jesus will do that. But he asks us to look for the fish, and to bring that fish to him, each and every day. Somehow, if we do that in faith and love, we will not be disappointed. The smallest bits of fish, the tiniest glimmers of wonder and delight, these are not too small to bring to the shore.  IT will be enough.  Easter 3c 19
