A True Follower
S - And Jesus said to him, "Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead." (Matthew 8:22 ESV)
O - A man said he wanted to follow Jesus, but he wanted to first take care of those in his family that were ready to die and bury them when it was time. Jesus told him that he needed to allow the dead to bury the dead, but he must follow immediately.
A - To be a follower of Jesus, I need to leave everything behind to follow him. Not allow my personal agenda to get in the way of his.
P - Father, give me the strength to follow you. Show me how I need to not be distracted by the things of this world and keep my eyes on you.
