Luke 5:10b-11 Then Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.” When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.The sign outside the small church read: “Be fishers of people. You catch ‘em. I’ll clean ‘em! Sincerely, God.” I still laugh out loud when I remember it; it evokes an image of God wearing eye black and camouflage, cleaning people like catfish in the bed of a truck.
