To another he said, "Follow me." (Luke 9:59 NRSV)
Harry Jamieson was a legendary hardware salesman back in the 1940s. When he was asked how many calls he would make on a prospect before giving up, he replied, "It depends which one of us dies first." Jamieson is reputed to have called on one prospect 125 times before getting an order. Another prospect caved in after a mere 40 calls. He explained, "I cannot help buying from you; your persistence has paralyzed my resistance."

Jesus said to a certain man, "Follow me." But the man replied, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family." Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

Let's keep looking forward, as we follow our savior.


Dear Jesus, may I do well today in following in your footsteps. Amen.
