Below is an exchange with a friend prompted by this post: The Look.
J: In the Simon/fish story, do you note that even though The Look forces Simon to action that he still doesn't do it with a willing heart? Jesus asked Simon to let down his NETS--plural--and Simon halfheartedly led down a NET--singular. Because he did not trust Jesus fully, he suffered loss as the net could not hold all the fish and was damaged. If Simon had obeyed, he would have had a wondrous catch, and his net would not have suffered. Simon's obedience was not complete.
I'm not picking on Simon, as he had worked hard all night and was most likely very tired. However, he lost the fullness of blessing Jesus had for him because he was unbelieving.
And I do believe The Look happened right at the colon, too!
I've often considered Jesus had The Look when speaking to the mob who wanted to stone the woman caught in sexual sin.
J: I've heard it said that Jesus wrote down the sins of the men involved, but I've never reconciled myself to that scenario. Wouldn't that have inflamed the mob and made them want to silence Him? There would have been angry outbursts and denials rather than a slipping away. Perhaps Jesus outlined the sins of their loved ones who could have serious repercussions if they received what they deserved without mercy--doing so without naming them but stating it in such a way that each man knew in his heart of hearts what He was talking about.
