"FISHERS OF MEN."

The story of the call of the Galilean fisherman to the Christian ministry, as told in the fourth chapter of Mathew, is characterized by great simplicity and suggestiveness. "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." This single sentence sufficed for their summons and their authorization, and yet in its very brevity it gives increased emphasis to the essentials of their new life-work; namely, conformity to the Christ-ideal, and utilization of that practical wisdom which has so largely to do with the success of Christian as well as commercial enterprises.

The life aims, the motives, the activities of these humble fisherman were all to be changed, exalted, and yet they were to remain fishermen, bring into everyday use for Christ all the alertness, the courage, the patience, the endurance, and the skill in adjusting means to ends which they had acquired in their many years of seafaring experience.
