Fishing for men...

"Follow me and I will make you fishers of men."  I realized recently that the mental image that pops into my head with that verse is probably not accurate.

Do we picture fishing for men like modern Americans fish?
  • one line, one hook, one worm
  • recreationally, if we have time
Or do we picture fishing for men more like a first century Jew would have fished?
  • big nets
  • time spent fixing nets
  • our very survival depends on it
  • you fish all night
  • you fish everyday
  • you sleep and eat so you can fish some more
And probably the scariest question: Are you fishing for men like an American or like a first century Jew?
