“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 1:16-18




As Jesus was walking along by the Sea of Galilee

He saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net in the lake – for they were fishermen.

And Jesus said to them,

“Follow me

and I will make you into fishers of men.”

And at once they left their nets and followed Him.


– Mark 1:16-18 (JB)






It is in the midst of our work, of our ordinary occupations,

that Jesus invites us to follow Him,

so as to make Him the centre of our very existence

and to serve Him.


He chooses us where we are,

and He leaves most of us just where we were:

in our family, in our job,

in the cultural or sports associations that we belong to,

so that we should love Him in our normal environment

and make Him known through our family ties;

through working relationships;

among friends.


From the moment that we decide to make Christ the centre of our lives,

everything we do is affected by that decision.


Meanwhile, every day we must ask ourselves

whether we are being consistent in using our time, our work, our leisure well

and with the main scope of growing in friendship with Jesus Christ;

of seeking to become like Him;

of loving and respecting Him;

of reflecting Him as we go about our lives.






Jesus, I want to follow You and make You the Centre of my life.

Lord, in everything I do, let me do it with love…for You.
