Luke 9:57-58      57 As Jesus and his disciples traveled along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Human One has no place to lay his head.” (CEB)

Yeshua is regularly approached by those who proclaim undying commitment to him, “I will follow you to the ends of the earth!”

His response is sobering, “It is way easier for you to follow politicians who promise you the moon (like foxes, they have their lairs — safe campaign headquarters and lobbyists who cater to their every needs); you think that you’ll feel more secure under the domination system of the American eagle which has feathered its nest in the world.

Follow me and you will have to follow your own inner-most, God-awakened longings. Those yearning will put you on a constant journey, carrying with you only those inner resources.

Consider this wisely before deciding where and when you commit yourself.
