Mark 1:17 “‘Come follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘And I will make you fishers of men.'” (NIV)*

Jesus was looking

for fishers of men,

Trained to cast nets

Knowing where to put-in.


He called these men

To fish for keeps,

Leave the familiar

His kingdom seek.


They could fish for fish

And stay the same,

Or fish for men

And the world, change.
