A parable of perseverance

Some thoughts on evangelism inspired by the parable of the sower (Matt 13):

A man went fishing and waited for a long time with out even a nibble. Then something hit is line, but it got away from him.

After a while he felt a fish grab his hook. He struggled to reel it in only to find out it was a gar.

He cast his line out again and reeled in a ten-pound bass.

The fisherman cannot control what happens on his hook. His job is to keep his line in the water.
