God in Art: Called

People are called from all stations in life to follow and serve the Lord. Matthew 9:9-13, the story of the calling of a tax collector, is a great example. In many ways, Matthew was an enemy to his people, collecting taxes for hated oppressors. But Jesus saw something holy in him and called him to a new life.

“The Calling of St. Matthew,” James Tissot, circa 1890
