Get a Bigger Pan

Two men went fishing one time.. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn't. Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back.

The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. "Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?" he asked.

The inexperienced fisherman replied, "I only have a small frying pan."

Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, the big dreams, the big opportunities, the big jobs that God gives us. Our faith is too small.

      *Are you still at the same place you were spiritually five years ago? Get a bigger pan!
      *Are you content with just coming to worship service on Sunday morning? Get a bigger pan!
      *Do you keep telling yourself that you are going to get more involved in the church, but never do? Get a bigger pan!
      *Do you have an overwhelming sensation to respond to the invitation each time it is offered, but leave without doing so? Get a bigger pan!

We laugh at the fisherman who didn't figure out that all he needed was a bigger frying pan; and yet how ready are we to increase the size of our faith?

For His Cause,
