When Jesus calls His first disciples, it is done with a sense of purpose. God has a plan, and a place for each of those whom He calls to love and serve.           

Jesus notes that Philip (Bartholomew) is the one in whom there is no guile. In doing so, He teaches us that humility matters most.

Dear Jesus, help me to discern my gifts and to place them at your service. May I be willing to serve as Your would have me do.
