LAUNCHING INTO THE DEEP


Dr. Robert Schuller's hobbies include raising koi fish. Asked why some grow big while others stay small, he replied, "If a koi fish lives in a small tank it will never grow longer than two or three inches. In a larger pond they can grow up to ten inches long--in ponds the size of mine they’ll get to be eighteen inches long--but if they live in a huge lake where they can swim and stretch, they can grow up to three feet long. The size of the pond determines the size of the fish. Similarly, little ideas in little-thinking minds produce little achievements. But little ideas embraced by big-thinking minds produce enormous achievements."


Jesus said, "According to your faith be it unto you" (Mt 9:29). The size of your faith and your vision determines the outcome of your idea. Ronald E. Osborn said, "Undertake something difficult; it will do you good. Unless you try something beyond what you have already mastered, you’ll never grow." You attain in direct proportion to what you attempt, which is why Jesus said to His disciples: "Launch out into the deep."
