A job offer
Assume you have a good job. You enjoy the work—you are with friends, work outdoors, and make a reasonably prosperous living. Then someone comes along and makes a startling job offer. He asks your friends and you to give all this up: "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Matt. 4:19;
The story is familiar—Christ Jesus asking Peter and Andrew to become his disciples. But think about it; how would you have responded if you were those fishermen? It must have seemed at first that Jesus was asking them to leave a certain amount of financial stability for an uncertain livelihood, to drop the trade they knew for a risky new venture, to stop spending their time providing for themselves, and work instead to help others. And for what reward? An intangible something called "the kingdom of heaven"!
