Luke 9:51-62

When the days drew near for Jesus to be taken up,      he set his face to go to Jerusalem. And he sent messengers ahead of him.      On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for      him; but they did not receive him, because his face was set toward      Jerusalem. When his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do      you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?”      But he turned and rebuked them. Then they went on to another village.

As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow      you wherever you go.” 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.” To      another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, first let me go and bury      my father.” But Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead; but      as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Another said, “I will      follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home.”      Jesus said to him, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is      fit for the kingdom of God.”
