We must have patience until the fish take the bait.Perseverance is necessary. Never be discouraged.Courage. As the old Greek said when he prayed for the protection of the Gods, ‘My boat is so small and the sea is so large.’We must have an eye for the right moment. When to cast, when not to cast.We have to fit the bait to the fish. Paul said he would become all things to all people if by any chance he might win some.The wise fisherman keeps himself out of sight, just as we will seek not to present ourselves, but Jesus Christ.
