“‘They straightway left their nets and followed Him’ (Mt. 4:20). The Apostles did not grudge leaving their nets for the Lord’s sake, although they were perhaps their only property, and precious to them because they lived by them; and we, likewise, for the Lord’s sake, ought to leave everything that hinders our following Him ? that is, all the many and various nets in which the enemy entangles us in life.”
