Cast the net on the right side

Many of the decisions we make on a daily basis are the result of our own analysis of our situations. But sometimes we’re wrong, and these mistakes can afflict us, causing stress or depression. So what would happen if we turned to God whenever we had decisions to make?

This was what happened to the disciples after Jesus’ resurrection while they were fishing in a boat on the Galilean sea. The Bible says, “That night they caught nothing” (John 21:3). In spite of the fact that Jesus had appeared to them twice since his resurrection, perhaps they still felt abandoned and dejected because their Master wasn’t with them anymore. Perhaps they still didn’t realize that the Christ, the divine message from God, was always at hand to reveal the truth to each one of them. So, when Christ Jesus appeared to them on the beach, at first they didn’t recognize him.
