One day Jesus was standing on the shore of Lake Gennesaret
while the people pushed their way up to him to listen to the word of God. He
saw two boats pulled up on the beach; the fishermen had left them and were
washing the nets. Jesus got into one of the boats - it belonged to Simon - and
asked him to push off a little from the shore. Jesus sat in the boat and taught
the crowd.
When he finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Push the boat
out further to the deep water, and you and your partners let down your nets for
a catch."
"Master," Simon answered, "we worked hard all night long and
caught nothing. But if you say so, I will let down the nets."
They let them down and caught such a large number of fish
that the nets were about to break.
So they motioned to their partners in the other boat to come
and help them. They came and filled both boats so full of fish that the boats were
about to sink. When Simon Peter saw what had happened, he fell on his knees
before Jesus and said, "Go away from me, Lord! I am a sinful man!"
He and the others with him were all amazed at the large
number of fish they had caught. The same was true of Simon's partners, James
and John, the sons of Zebedee. Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid; from now
on you will be catching people."
They pulled the boats up on the beach, left
everything, and followed Jesus.

Luke 5: 1-11

A story about the disciples and the way in which they begin to learn about how special Jesus was. We see some very ordinary things such as the washing of nets and special things such as the miraculous catch of fish. In the story there is a recognition that Jesus is special and, in the end, is someone that you might want to follow.
