Today’s Gospel Lesson reminds us of the challenges of following Jesus, as we see a variety of responses to his invitation to follow.
As they were going along the road, someone said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’
Additional Scripture Verse
And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.
“There is No Looking Back.”
