Are You Driven by the Culture of Money or God? – Raising GENERATION Zion

Father-child stories of going fishing or playing together often stir up fond memories. How many parents are teaching their children to fish? 

There is also this saying, “teach a man to fish, and you’ll feed him for a lifetime.” When a father teaches a child to seek Jesus, he will stay fed forever.

Followers of Christ are fishers of men. Do you say you are a Christ follower? Then your topmost priority is the salvation of souls.

Parents stress themselves out, preparing children to be top professionals in the world. Every job is about fishing men, directly or indirectly. Businesses are all about people. A doctor fishes for patients, lawyers for clients, engineers code for more people to engage with their technology, etc. 

Culture of Money: The Corporate Phishing and Biblical Fishing conundrum

The same people we fish for salvation are the ones who are being phished for worldliness and self-glory by brands. The tussle between the flesh and the spirit begins early. We get conditioned at home, school, and college, and then the workplace calls the shots on core values to live by and what qualities to have. Corporate values founded on the power of money guide the top bread-earner not only at work but at home too. Money becomes the Master over a while, replacing Jesus.

While every fishing we do in the world relies on our abilities, the fishers of men are divinely inspired and powered by the Holy Spirit to be a witness. Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the uttermost parts of the world are waiting for you, dear brother and sister, to hear your witness (Acts 1:8).

No matter what you accomplish on earth, submit to God’s calling to be fishers of men. He will bless everything else too. Seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness first, and all other needs get fulfilled. 

Maranatha, Praise God, and Amen.
