(St. Hilary of Poitiers)
In the beginning . . .
As he (Jesus) passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Then they left their nets and followed him. Mk 1:14-20
I’ve always said, “I couldn’t sell a glass of water to
a thirsting nomad in the desert – for free!”
Jesus just had a way!
And they left EVERYTHING!
Their job, their father, their families . . .
to follow Him!
Lord, Help me to be more like them.
To let go of all that this world makes me think
I can’t live without.
And live ONLY for You!
