Two brothers who were known for being thrifty saved their money for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Holy Land. Arriving at the Sea of Galilee, they discovered that it would cost them fifty dollars each to cross the lake by boat. They protested the price, exclaiming that they could take a similar boat ride in their home town for just a few dollars. The guide replied, “Oh, but this is the sea that Jesus walked on!” The brothers quickly retorted, “No wonder he walked, seeing the prices you charge for a boat ride!”
“Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”—Matthew 14:25-27.
