It is hard to call yourself a fisherman if you are not fishing. In a similar sense, it is hard to call yourself a disciple if you are not fishing for men.

Physical adultery does not originate in a vacuum; it begins with spiritual adultery in the heart. The hearts of the 10 northern tribes were unfaithful and corrupt.
