The disciples left everything to follow Jesus!

It’s amazing!

And I must confess, it made me feel inadequate.

I knew I couldn’t leave my family to follow God…and I probably couldn’t leave my electronic devices and comfy bed…at least not long term. Did that make me a bad person of faith?

We know that the circumstances around this story are different than the way life is now. Following a teacher would be the most amazing thing for a person - whether your Rabbi was the son of God or not!

Do I need to feel bad because I don’t think I can do the same? I don’t think so. There is Grace - and there are many ways to follow God!

Teaching God, help us to follow you in the best way possible. Amen
