FISHERS OF MEN

It is recorded in the Bible that Jesus once walked by the Sea of Galilee and saw two fishermen casting their nets into the water. He called to the men, Simon Peter and his brother Andrew, and said (Matt. 4:19, 20), "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." And it is recorded that "they straightway left their nets, and followed him."

In a letter to a First Reader, Mary Baker Eddy told him to put on the robes of Christ, that is, the spiritual qualities of meekness and truth. Thereby, she assured him, his thought would be spiritualized and he would draw all men to him to receive the good which he had to impart. Then she added (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 247): "God has called you to be a fisher of men. It is not a stern but a loving look which brings forth mankind to receive your bestowal,—not so much eloquence as tender persuasion that takes away their fear, for it is Love alone that feeds them."
