Our Daily Manna December 4, 2017: ODM devotional – Catch Of A Lifetime: Dishonesty Is Poisonous!

Topic — Catch Of A Lifetime: Dishonesty Is Poisonous! [Monday, December 4, 2017]

There was once an 11-year old who went fishing with his father in the middle of a New Hampshire lake of the UK.

They were catching Sunfish and Perch with worms. Then he threw the hook into the water again and when his pole rolled over, he knew that something huge is on the other end. Behold, he had caught a big fish: A bass fish that was banned by government because the Bass fishing tournament industry helped o sell recreational fishing products. BASS is name some species (types) of fish that are often caught for food or sport. The boy and the father both looked at the handsome fish with its gills playing back and front in the moonlight.

The father used their torchlight to look at the watch and the time was 10p.m and nobody would see them if they carry the banned fish home. The father looked at the fish, then at the boy and said, “Son you would have to put it back into the water.” Dad, cried the son, “there will be no fish as big as this one. Why can’t we take it away?  Its 10p.m and there are no security around.” Painfully however, he dropped the fish back into the black water. That was about 44 years ago! Today, he is a successful architect in New York City and he still takes his children to fish.

He has never caught such big fish as the one he lost 44 years ago, but he happy he kept his integrity. What will you do when no one is looking at you at 10p.m. or anytime? Proverb 11:3 says: “Integrity shall guide and promote.” As for the grace to always do the right thing in the open or in secret. Hear Daniel Webster: “There is nothing as powerful as the truth.” Hear this again: “You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some f the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”

As 2017 ends, resist dishonesty and a double lifestyle even in the dark! It is acidic! It is poisonous! It is deadly! Don’t you know that the future – 20118 – is carrying your SPECIAL DECORATION? Don’t scatter it by your lifestyle! You will shine.
