Matthew 8:19-22. Two Followers. 27 Feb 2023

Mat 8:19 One of the scribes then came up and said to him,
'Master, I will follow you wherever you go.'
20 Jesus said,
'Foxes have holes
and the birds of the air have nests,
but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.'
21 Another man, one of the disciples, said to him,
'Lord, let me go and bury my father first.'
22 But Jesus said,
'Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.'

What I believe is:
a) Jesus did not stop the pharisee from following him.
b) He as well did not stop the disciple from burying his father.
I still might miss the mark.

The words poverty and detachment come to my mind.


Jesus, what do I need to give up to follow you?
