Don't Look Back

When Jesus says, "Follow me." don't look back at the things you will be leaving. He once told some guy to follow him BUT the guy wanted to go say bye to his family. Jesus told him, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God." (Luke 9) Convicting, isn't it? Are you unwilling to follow Jesus like that? I don't know about myself. What earthly things do you prize above the Kingdom of Heaven? They can be very subtle. Sometimes we can't list them. Single-mindedness is hard, isn't it. But God is trustworthy to answer our prayers and fulfill his promises to us.
