Tomorrow Never Comes

“Why do today what can be put off until tomorrow?” What procrastinator hasn’t had that thought before? It always seems easier if we wait until tomorrow arrives.

Today’s passage is very confusing. Did Jesus really not want the man to bury his father? No, that’s not the point. It could be that Jesus wanted the man (and us) to understand how easy it is to get focused on today’s tasks and miss the bigger picture of tomorrow. There are plenty of worthwhile things we need to do. However, we can’t let the “now” hold us back from the future.

“I’ll worry about Jesus later when I’m older.” “I’ll focus on that later.”

Jesus says, “Come. Follow me.”

Now is the time!
