Hey friend…As one on this lonely road life seems to come a day at a time. Bluntly any touting “retirement” lost Jesus on the path. I do not believe you can be follower of Jesus and work for a retirement gild.
Jesus’ response to those struggling with how to quit could be interpreted as harsh, “Sell everything you own,” he said to the rich young ruler (Luke 18:18-23). “Follow me and let the dead bury their own dead,” he said to a man whose father had just died (Matt. 8:19-22).
Did he just not care about the man’s need to mourn his father? What’s going on there? Perhaps Jesus’ dramatic request was linked to his understanding that there’s something in all of us that will find an excuse to put off a particularly hard choice. Leaving a place of comfort is rarely easy. But leaving is something that we need to do if we’re ever to get to a place of freedom.
So wonderful, thanks man.
So is this saying we should commit suicide or should NOT commit suicide???
