Loose ends and scattered ducks

Another of His disciples said, “Lord, first let me return home and bury my father.” But Jesus told him, “Follow me now. Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead.” Matt. 8:18

There is never a perfect moment to commit. Ducks have a way of wandering off the row. Every day is full of loose ends and demanding circumstances. Jesus is not Somebody that can be pencilled into a schedule. He sets the schedule. He is the schedule.

Lord, I follow You now with all the loose ends and scattered ducks of my life streaming along behind me!
