Come With Me

Matthew 4:19 Come, follow me, Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men.
How many of us would have faith enough to leave our material things, things that we have worked for all of our life behind to follow someone we did not know? The answer: hardly anyone. We have become so materialistic, so selfish that giving self is not an option to many. Giving self means to put someone else first without judgement. Without hesitation. Having faith that all is a test in the eyes of God. What ever you give you will get it back ten times over. We and I surely include myself here. We must give as first nature. Not second. Not third. We must put ourselves in the other persons shoes. We must remain non judgemental. We must forgive. This takes practice for some. Some it comes as the first and foremost. I for one must practice every day. I want it to be first nature for me. Like the disciples, there was no hesitation. They had faith.
