RADICAL SOLUTIONS

A pastor was walking along a river one day, when he came across some boys who were fishing. But this was no ordinary way of fishing, because to the surprise of the onlooker, they were casting a tire into the water. The result? They were hauling the fish in by the bucketload! As he started walking away the Lord seemed to say to him, "It’s radical methods of fishing that will catch souls."

We read in Mark 2:4, "Being unable to get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had dug an opening; they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying." Now that’s a radical method of getting the attention of Jesus, and it worked!

A truck driver thought that he’d take a short-cut. But the sign posts were right. His truck was slightly higher than the bridge clearance above the road. With traffic stopped, engineers were called to work out how to remove the jammed truck and minimize further damage to the bridge. A little girl in the traffic jam wound down her window and simply said "Try letting the air out of the tires." Well it worked, and we can see from this simple story an illustration of how a radical solution can help solve a problem.
