Feb. 10 (The Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany)

Luke 5:5“And Simon answered, ‘Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.’ Peter’s words show both exasperation and trust. He’s tired. He tried his best and failed. But he is still ready to trust the Lord’s word – and act on it. Our stewardship is also a matter of trusting the Lord’s word … and acting on it.
