“When He had gone a little farther from there, Jesus saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets.” Mark 1:19
The nets in this story are symbolic of the relationships that we engage in throughout the course of our lives. In the final analysis it’s our relation- ships that make our lives rich. That’s one reason why they can be so hard at times. Our greatest joys in life come through our relationships and our greatest frustrations come relationally as well.
