Day four of read through the Bible in a year

Today I read Genesis 8:1-10:32, Matthew 4:12-4:25, Psalm 4:1-8, and Proverbs 1:20-23. The verse that stands out the most to me today was Matthew 4:19

 "Come and Follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."  Matthew 4:19

The verses prior to that are about Simon Peter and Andrew who were fisherman in Galilee. What gets me is that Jesus could have chosen anybody to be his disciples, and he chooses to call two small town boys (I'd call them country boys) to follow Him to learn from Him. This goes to show that God can choose anybody to impact the world for God. Jesus choose Simon Peter and Andrew not because of who they were but because of who God is. This verse helps to remind me on days that I doubt myself  that God can still use me just like He used two simple fisherman.
