DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 22:1-33; Psalm 128:1-131:3; Mark 8:11-26

And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. Luke 5:10

James and John were Simon’s “partners,” which is the word koinonos which means “fellowship.” Here is a picture of fellowship that goes far beyond “hanging out together,” or liking the same things. They worked together as partners in fishing. Maintaining the boat and the nets, and co-labouring in all the physical work of the fishing business. Today some who say they are in fellowship have trouble making it to the meetings, and participate little in the work of the assembly. What about us, are we partners or spectators? —Carl Knott

To the work, to the work! We are servants of God,
Let us follow the path that our Master has trod. — Fanny J. Crosby
