Swimming With Sharks

Which Shark Are You?
We visited two aquariums on spring break. Sharks swam among many different ocean creatures, most of whom would likely make a tasty meal for them, including a diver in one tank. The sharks and fish all circled the tanks, in some instances swimming over the top of us in a tunnel, as we all oohed and awed at their magnificence.

What keeps the sharks from being the natural predators that they are? How do they keep them from eating the other fish?

They’re full.

Because they’re fed well. They have no need to hunt because they’re well cared for.

And I wondered how many of us could be full if we chose to be?

Instead of always looking for something to make us feel loved, cared for, and filled?

Could it be that simple?

Could the Lord fill us to overflowing so that we stopped hunting for something else to fill our hearts and lives?

What if we just simply asked Him for it? Asked Him to fill us so full that we stopped looking for love in all the wrong places? And will we actually do that? Or is it so simple that we’ll roll our eyes and ignore the message of our Creator and keep seeking humans, possessions, food, and money to fill our souls?

Do we truly believe God is all we need?

What would it look like to be truly full of Him? What would your life look like? What would your heart look like?

These are the questions we need to be asking. This should be the message we work to fulfill.

We are the shark. We’re either on the hunt as a predator or we’re satisfied and swimming with complete content. Which shark are you?
