Today is a new day.

A new day. A new day. A new day! I made sure to mention "A new day" emphatically because very often we get stuck on the past worrying about what we could havd done better, and what we would have done better had we been given another chance, another shot at it.

Do you remember what Jesus told the man who wanted to follow Him? This man wanted to follow the King of kings and the Lord of lords but He was still worrying about what was in the country. The man was worrying about what he had where he was. This man was still concerned with the things of this world.

But he was going to follow the King of kings; had he known who he was following he would have forsaken the things worrying about what he had in the country. He would have forsaken everything to follow Jesus because then he would have known that Jesus had all the power and authority to provide all his needs, just as Jesus had fed and filled the five thousand men excluding women and children. This man would have known that Jesus had the power to cure every disease and sickness just as He had been doing all throughout Israel. This man would have know that Jesus could provide the finances needed to fulfil God's will and purpose for his life on earth. Jesus had already proven this as He gave directions to Peter to go and find the fish which had the gold coin in its mouth. Peter used it to pay the taxes of both Jesus and himself. Had this man known who Jesus is he would have left everything and followed Him with out any hesitation. But he didn't know The Truth.

And so Jesus had to tell him something. Do you remember what that was? Let's look at it here:

"18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side. 19 Then a certain scribe came and said to Him, "Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go." 20 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." 21 Then another of His disciples said to Him, "Lord, let me first go and bury my father." 22 But Jesus said to him, "Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.(Matthew 8:18-22)"
