Matthew 4:20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
The early disciples, the apostles, left everything to follow Jesus. In this verse, the fishermen left their nets. They left their livelihoods. They gave up their lives to give Him their lives. They walked away from what they knew to follow Him and learn from Him.
Are we willing to leave anything at all to follow Jesus? Are we willing to put Him first in our lives? I fear that too much of our lives is holding on rather than giving up.
