    The Cost of Following Jesus

    18 When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake.

    19 Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”

    20 Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

    21 Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”

    22 But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”
    Matthew 8:18-22


    Yes, they were to forego even their own worldly father's funeral to follow Jesus.

    In other words, there isn't one worldly commitment that should come before our commitment to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

    Not parents, not children, not even spouses...make God first in your life and all the other relationships will fall into place.
