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.” Mt_8:18-22
Sometimes following Jesus means letting go of what drags us down, what holds us back. It means dropping off the dead wood and growing. Sometimes that dead wood may be events of the past, regrets, anger, hatred, disappointment. Sometimes it may be encumbering relationships. Follow me, Jesus says. And let the dead bury their dead! You, come and grow!
