They left everything

“Jesus said to Simon, ‘Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.’ When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him.” (LK 5: 10-11)

Sometimes people think of leaving everything as a very difficult condition. But actually, it is not about “leaving everything”; it is rather about “following Him.” Our Lord has much, much more than we can imagine and the more we leave behind, the more we can receive. We need to leave our premises, our visions, our why, and our strategies because we will start a totally new life, a totally new dimension. 

“Come after me, says the Lord, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Gospel Acclamation)
