A true fisher of men............

With all of the sniping and accusations that have occured on various blogs, I think we need to read a story that puts things in perspective. Clay Dyer has a dream job. He believes without a doubt God called him to become a professional fisherman -- and not just the "fisher of men" variety. Dyer makes his living with a rod, reel and tricked-out bass boat -- complete with a fancy paint job paid for by a sponsor -- Dyer's life is the kind many men would envy, except for one detail. He was born with no legs and no left arm. His right arm stops above the elbow. Read his story here. That hasn't stopped Dyer from competing in fishing tournaments. But his biggest thrill is to tell people about Jesus Christ. Now he is a pro fisherman except the biggest catches he gets are people. He said:
"It's not about the national exposure for Clay Dyer but a means of drawing people to Christ," he said. "People ask me why I fish, and I tell them, 'It's my witnessing field, my platform for testifying about what God has done in my life and what he can do in other people's lives.'"
Wow! When you are down in the dumps and worried about trivial stuff, think about Clay Dyer and his passion for reaching people for Jesus.
