Matthew 8:19-20, NIV: Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

What do we seek that hinders us from following Christ? If He calls us, will He not also equip? If He sends us, will He not also provide for our needs? Within the eyes of some disciples, hesitation could be seen. What Jesus asked of them left them bewildered, and dismayed. They were content to follow Him in ways that fit their expectations. One man proclaimed, “I will follow you wherever you go.” But would he follow if he did not know where he would hang his hat? Would he follow when uncertain where his next meal was coming from? Today, Christ calls us each to follow Him wherever. To places unknown and unfamiliar, He calls us. To times of uncertainty, He calls us. And if we choose to forsake all else, that is when we’ll find Him--and so much more than we first thought, or could possibly imagine.
