“First, Let Me…Bury my Father”
Thank you, God, for the privilege of being disciples of Jesus Christ.
Fill us, God, with the commitment we need to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
Remind us, God, that it is in following Jesus Christ that we find real life.
Thank you, God, that ordinarily we can and should express our discipleship and live our lives in ways that allow us to show great care and concern for our families.
Still, God, create in us a sense of true priorities so that there is in our minds and hearts no doubt about who and what come first.
“Another of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, first let me go and bury my father.’ But Jesus said to him, ‘Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.’” (Matthew 8:21-22)
