In today's Gospel, Jesus makes it clear that to follow Him means leaving all and "foxes have dens and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head." This has always seemed to call me to make a home in my heart for Jesus and invite Him to come and rest there.
Then, so often when Jesus again invites us to "follow Him", we find we are making excuses; we are too busy now, this duty is waiting for us, etc. Yet, we will be able to accomplish all that needs to be done if we are united to Jesus. Let us be prompt in following Him when He calls. He is always with us, but we forget this and so He continues to call us. He is the Good Shepherd who leads us to green pastures and still water.
