‘Lord, I will follow You wherever You go’
‘Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head’
‘Lord, let me first go and bury my father’
‘Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God’
‘Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house’
‘No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.’
I don’t know why, but these words frighten me. Perhaps it’s because Jesus measures your commitment by how much you let go, and, even if all is relinquished, these paltry sacrifices do not necessarily mean that you are in love.
