Matthew 4:18-20 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” 20At once they left their nets and followed him. Why would Peter and Andrew leave everything to follow Jesus? With the Super Bowl ending as it should (Go Baltimore),   I was reminded about…
