When Jesus saw a crowd around him,
he gave orders to cross to the other shore.
A scribe approached and said to him,
“Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”
Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests,
but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.”
Another of his disciples said to him,
“Lord, let me go first and bury my father.”
But Jesus answered him, “Follow me,
and let the dead bury their dead.”

Matthew 8:18-22


Dear Father once again we are given the simple reply of Jesus to "Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead." Jesus is life! You sent him to us so we may live by following him. He leads us to you the source of life giving water. If we do not want to follow your Son or you then we might as well be dead. Let us then find life by following Jesus. When we open our hearts to him he will find a place in which he may rest. May we find in our hearts the desire to follow Jesus all the days of our lives. Amen
