And another of his disciples said to him, Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.
But Jesus said to him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead!
Some people might think Jesus was being harsh, but he was not!
The boys father wasn’t on his death bed, he was just an elderly old man and he probably had more energy than most!
Jesus wanted this young man to make a decision. Was he going to stay behind and take care of the old man or was he gonna put Him first!
We have to make that same decision every morning when we get out of bed!
Me first, or Jesus, that’s the choice you have to make today! I pray you’ll make the right one!
