The apostles John and Andrew were neighboring boys who worked their fathers' long nets.
They pined for more meaningful lives. So when they heard abut John the Baptist turning people's lives around, they got permission from their fathers to go help John the Baptist.
When The Baptist said there was one greater than him, they thought of following him. The next day Jesus walks by and John the Baptist points him out, "Behold, the Lamb of God." With that, the boys left John the Baptist to follow Jesus, who turned and asked them, "What are you looking for?"
The gospel reading honestly asks the same thing Jesus asked, "What is it you are looking for?" A question we all should be prepared to answer.
