Have you ever noticed that many heroes and superheroes do their work all alone? The American experience seems to highlight stories of people who taught themselves, defeated the odds, or singlehandedly grew a fortune, got power, etc. Yet all this is contrary to the life Jesus calls us to live. A life with God and for God is also a life with and for other people.
READ John 21:1-14.
What do you think about this story?
What would you do if you were the disciples and just had your world turned upside down?
How do you like to relax and clear your head?
What do you do when life gets confusing and complicated?
How would you describe the disciples’ relationship with each other?
Why do you think the disciples stuck together?
The disciples thought they were all alone that night out on the water, but Jesus was there.
Have you ever found yourself in a similar place? Feeling alone and later seeing how God was at work all along?
PRAYER: Talk to God about where or when you feel alone. Ask God to let you see how he is with you and at work. Talk to him about the people he has put in your path and how you can share his love with them.
