Following Jesus requires commitment and always looking forward

Following Jesus requires commitment and always looking forward
Wednesday of the Twenty-sixth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Lk 9:57-62
As Jesus and his disciples were proceeding on their journey, someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we continue traveling with Jesus towards Jerusalem. Along the way, after suffering the rejection from a town of Samaritans, several people meet Jesus and want to follow the Master. Apparently Jesus imposes harsh conditions. Maybe it's not that much! - Life itself has its demands. Who has an eternal "lair" in this life? Is it not true that sometimes we waste time with useless things? Can you start forming a family, a company ... and then back out?
