One day long ago, a master fisherman was walking by the water’s edge. Upon seeing a group of tired fisherman washing their empty nets after the fruitless efforts of a long night’s labors, he got in a small boat and put out a little from the shore. He called out to them asking if he could help them. He said, “Would you like to catch the “Big One”? Responding with a rousing chorus of “Yes!”, “You Bet!”, and “Of course we want to!”, the seasoned angler said, “Drop your net in the deep waters.” Suddenly, to their surprise the weight of their net tugged and pulled nearly bursting as it teamed with fish to overflowing. Startled and puzzled by the strange ability this man had to attract the catch to their net from another boat, the rowdy fishermen determined to hang on his every word until they discovered the secret to the irresistible lure that could hook the prized trophy from afar.
Passed on from man to man, and as effective today as on that first fishing excursion, the bait that never fails is yours for the taking
