From the April 1955 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The day Christ Jesus stopped at the shore of the Sea of Galilee and asked Simon Peter and Andrew to become his followers, they were busy at their tasks as fishermen. Had they been guided by human will, they might have replied that they did not want to leave their relatives, friends, or home; or they could have objected to giving up a familiar occupation for an untried way of life; or they might have expressed doubt that they would be equal to the work ahead of them as disciples of the Master.
