One evening during our mission trip to Alabama last week, our group went out on a shrimp boat. When the nets were pulled in and their contents dumped out, the whole group went to work sorting the catch. This came quickly to mind:
Walking along the beach of Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work. Jesus said to them, "Come with me. I'll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I'll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass." They didn't ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.
Matthew 4:18-20 (from The Message)
