Thirteenth Sunday In Ordinary Time

As Jesus calls people, we hear legitimate reasons for putting off the call to follow.  Jesus replies that another can bury the dead or bid farewell.  What keeps you from following Christ?  Are there things that you need to release or allow to die so that you may freely follow Christ?  If anger or past hurts are holding you back, it may be time to say goodbye to them and move on.  Today Jesus may be urging you not to look back.
