As Jesus and his disciples were proceeding on their journey, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” And to another he said, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.” But he answered him, “Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the Kingdom of God.” And another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.” Jesus answered him, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.”
Nothing can come before God. When He calls He wants you to follow Him and not look back on your life. He will take care of you and prepare you for what He has planned. Do not look back, Jesus wants you to always look forward. He is the way forward. He will never lead you to something that you cannot do. Have faith and trust in God and you will always walk toward the light.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I never turn my back on you. I hope I can always keep my eyes on you and not look back on my past sins. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Let my tongue be silenced if I ever forget you!
