A fun “tip” my dad used to share when I was young:
“Only dead fish go with the flow all the time.”
And then you have the opposite:
Salmon struggle to swim up stream to find a place to spawn and lay their eggs.
[Now cue the theologizing of the Pastor as he works on the Sunday sermon]
Only dead fish (“Christians”) go with the flow (of culture) all the time.
Salmon (true Christ followers) struggle to swim up stream (deny themselves and pick up their cross and follow Jesus) to find a place to spawn and lay their eggs (share the Gospel and bring glory to God).
Hmmm…that could work.
Any thoughts on this?
