Scripture ~ Matthew 4:22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.
Observation ~ I can easily see an otherwise unattached person leaving their current position to follow a calling. But what struck me here is that James and John left not only their family business, but their family as well, and without second thought.
Application ~ Sons are sent, daughters are given. Given the example of sons, what am I doing to prepare my sons, who will - one day - be sent?
Prayer ~ Father, show me. Sons are still so new to me. Show me how I, in my mothering, can prepare my sons to immediately leave and follow you.
