The disciples went fishing by their own effort for they thought that Jesus has not risen. They went back doing their former trade by themselves and they completely forgot about Jesus. Then as they approached the shore Jesus was already there waiting. Jesus said to them, “Children, have you caught anything to eat?” They answered him, “No.”
Jesus said to them, “Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something.” So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in because of the large number of fish. We see the big influence that Jesus had in the lives of the disciples. Without Jesus they caught nothing but when Jesus came into the picture they caught plenty of fish.
This gospel scenario is also applicable in our daily lives. If we do things by ourselves we end-up with nothing. Say for example, we want to become rich which is not at all bad and by a stroke of luck we became rich. But we were not able to handle the sudden wealth so we still end-up with nothing. It happened because Jesus was not part of our lives and He was not there to properly guide us.
But the moment we ask Jesus to help us achieve our life’s aspirations and goals. Once we pray to Jesus to help us guide our children so that they become loving and successful individuals. We surely will be able to achieve our aspirations and goals for the simple reason that we invoked the guidance and help of Jesus.
Jesus makes all things possible no matter how difficult it may seem. We only need to do one thing and that is ask for His help and guidance. Do you always ask the help and guidance of the Lord? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
