Following Jesus is, of course, a very different matter. It demands full attention to the details as we participate in the big picture. I select his tweets at my peril.
But, as a disciple, what I find difficult is the process of discernment. I will (I claim, I think) follow Jesus anywhere he wants me to go. Except that he seems very, very quiet at times when I need to hear most. Could it be that my own hard-heartedness has made me deaf? I will follow you anywhere! Anywhere? Jesus eyeballs me. Yes! Raised eyebrow. Maybe...except for...but not...please don't. Maybe I need to listen a little closer.
