Jesus helped His friends catch fish.

How can you guide your child to help others today? Ask a child to name his or her friends. Talk together about how your child’s friends might need some help. Does someone need a kind word, a hug, or a smile? Does someone need help putting away toys or working a puzzle? Does someone need help putting on a coat or shoes? Encourage your child to be a helper every day, just like Jesus.

Peter and his friends are fisherman. They catch fish for a living. Sometimes they catch many fish. Sometimes they fish for a long time and don’t catch any! Peter had fished all night and hadn’t caught one fish. Jesus wanted to go fishing with him. Jesus told Peter he would catch fish now. Jesus told Peter where to put the fishing net in the water. Peter put it where Jesus said. The net was filled with fish just like Jesus had said!
