When you stand on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, you realize that it's not a major body of water like Lake Michigan or the Great Salt Lake in Utah. It is a relatively small lake, but it was the center of life for many of those who lived around its edges. Their livelihood depended on the fishing in the lake and the boats that transported goods to the other side.
But when you stand there, you can't help but think about that morning long ago when Jesus met an enthusiastic crowd at the water's edge. From there, He led them farther up the hillside to a spot where all could sit and listen. There He shared the words that continue to impact us today. These words of blessing need to come alive in our imagination. His words have the power to touch our hearts and change our lives - just as they did for the people who sat around Him on that morning long ago beside the Sea of Galilee.
