Jesus chooses Andrew to be one of the first apostles, along with his brother, Peter, and the other fishermen, James and John. Matthew tells us that they leave their nets and their families at once. We will never know what caught their attention to follow the Lord. I can only surmise that it is the task of being an apostle- “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news,” that attracted them and changed their lives forever.
Maybe our lives can change a little if we begin to bring good news to the world around us.
