Fishers of Men

O, Lord, what’s it all about,
This "blogging?"
Feeds, links, posts and pings,
So much to learn,
Much more to do.

A world within a world,
A web of letters, syllables, and words,
And people pinging people,
For seeing, or not seeing,
Things just as they do.

Why me? Why a blogosphere?
It won’t make me famous.
It surely won’t make me money.
It won’t even make me friends.

Maybe the Lord is saying:
“Jump in, My friend!”
“That’s were the fish are swimming.”
Fishers of men must use the Net.

    Love it! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face today. I just wrote a article about being fishers of men myself. If you have a chance, check it out:
    I would love to hear any thoughts you might have. Thanks again.

      “You may share with him or her the good news of God’s love and forgiveness, but you may not see any results. That doesn’t mean God isn’t working through your message. To use the Apostle Paul’s metaphor, you have planted a seed. Someone else may water it and see it grow (1 Corinthians 3:6-9).”

      This is so true for bloggers. I feel like I’m working in the dark, not knowing who sees it or if it’s hit its mark.
