That’s what the first four apostles called by Jesus did: they “immediately left their boat. . . and followed him.” What could I do immediately today? It’s easy to let another day go by, but what about today? Could I buy a toy for a poor child today? Could I get around to making that phone call? Could I help someone arrange a zoom visit with a relative in a care facility? Could I refrain from the next sarcastic or unkind comment that pops into my head? These are choices that demand our immediate attention.
