Poncho Liner Poverty

As they were going along the road, someone said to Him, “I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”
(Luke 9: 57-58)

A 5×7 sheet of nylon, slightly quilted, intended for use in the Tropics was all we had to sleep with in the mountains of North Georgia in the middle of winter. Life was rough and there was more shivering than sleeping going on, I can assure you. These kind of sacrifices are part of being a soldier. (Remember the guys sleeping next to the tire of their hummer in the dirt during an incredible sand storm on FOXNEWS.) Following Jesus is the same. When Jesus replied to the one who wanted to follow Him, He said it will take sacrifice. To be as Hard Core about your faith as you are your profession. Spiritual wimps need not apply. I think that’s what He’s saying to this would be recruit. Do you find your faith taking you out of your comfort zone? Jesus says that’s normal. SP318
