Profit versus Purpose | The Case of Peter’s Boat and Jesus Christ
In a season; you may have given up. You could be washing your nets on something that God wants to use as his platform. Maybe, just like Peter, the boat you are using today for fishing is not necessarily meant for that purpose. Just like Peter, your mind be focused on profit (fish) while God has earmarked the same boat for a special purpose (pulpit).

Profit versus Purpose | The Case of Peter’s Boat and Jesus Christ

You really need to change your vision to get to understand some of these things. Peter was washing his nets and boat because he was seeing his situation and capacity based on history. His history told him that it’s possible to go for fishing and go back home empty handed! History provides an important yardstick for the future, but sometimes it is counterproductive for future progress and success. When you only see your life from the perspective of what you have already done, and possibly failed; then you are unlikely to see other things that you can accomplish with the same resources! You seriously need to re-envision your situation from a different perspective.

When a woman wears her blue skirt and a white jacket; she will always be tempted to think that’s the best combination for that outfit. She could become content in it because she always sees it based on her past experience. When she takes a look at all those portraits and photos that were taken of her in that outfit combination, she becomes content that there is no other better way of mixing the two. But, she could be shocked the moment she decides to try the same blue skirt with a yellow top! There could be a totally amazing combination there that be worth a prize and a thousand descriptions!

Your vision is the one that limits your expression. When you look around in life, you will see very successful couples that are made up of individuals that were once used and discarded in their earlier relationships. You can turn around society and see bastard children that grew up to become chief executive officers of international corporates! Turn around your head and see maids that have grown up to become successful doctors and lawyers! Turn around your neighbourhood and you will see some criminals that were once incarcerated as ‘D’ Class prisoners but have now been born again to become great pastors, ministering powerfully and impacting generations! The Apostle Paul is one such perfect biblical example.

Before you think that your situation is now irretrievable; why don’t you take a look of the same situation from another perspective? You could be running after profit on a boat whose purpose is for preaching! Think seriously about this, and change your perspectives.
