I wonder how much of life is like that walk. We opt out of so many things that are hard and uncomfortable and ridiculous. Sometimes I think that God is looking down on us and seriously thinking about busting out the heavenly cattle prod, just to get us off the sofa and onto a path that actually goes somewhere. Ah Sovereign Lord, help me to hear your voice and come running to follow, wherever it is you wish me to go.
Mark 2:13-14--"Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector's booth. 'Follow me,' Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him."
