Thanks for this post, and for the biblical quotes.

The grace of God is really amazing, abundant fishes are there in the vast great oceans and seas of mother Earth. But it is sad that people failed to acknowledged His presence and have abused the natural wonders of the seas.

A time will come when there will be no fishes in the oceans and seas. It will be too late to for the next generations to save the lives of the seas.

A blessed weekend.
