“‘Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ At once they left their nets and followed him.” Matthew 4:19-20
I know. I know. It’s such a common verse!
Still, in between cleaning up Avery’s spit up, asking Ayla to sit still, and figuring out what I was actually listening to, this verse caught my attention at mass today. Jesus calls us to “leave” our comfortable existence, take up our new nets of evangelization and fish for our brothers and sisters. Seek out those who need love and encouragement. Share the Truth with those who desire more from life.
It will not be an easy fishing trip – it will take patience, time and understanding! Bring your favorite snacks and begin!
