What Career

From Open Windows Devotional, Lifeway, April 2016

What is your Career?

 

Devotional Passage:

Luke 5:10-11

Read the Bible Through:

Ruth 3-4
Luke 5:1-26

 

And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him. Luke 5:10-11

Jesus continued his teaching and when the multitudes grew he borrowed some fishing boats to use as platforms from which to teach. There he meets some hard luck fishermen. They had fished all night and not caught anything. Simon, James and John owned those fishing boats that Jesus used as platforms. They listened while he taught and obeyed when Jesus told them to cast their nets one more time.

You have read the story; Jesus does a miracle and then changes their careers. You have been fishermen but now you will fish for men. Did they ever fish again? Yes, they did but they knew they were not just fishermen anymore.

What about you? What is your career? Jesus works through our careers to draw people to Himself. Allow him to do that through your job today.

 

Heavenly Father, we pray for those we come in contact today. May they see Jesus in our lives and in our words!
