PACK LIGHTLY: This is the second chapter in a row in which Jesus sends out missionaries, and in both cases He instructs them to only take with them the clothes on their backs. This follows a very consistent pattern for Jesus. In ch. 5, He instructed Peter & Matthew to immediately walk away from their businesses and follow Him. Yesterday in ch. 9, He told the disciples to deny themselves, take up their cross and follow Him and then invited another man to drop what he was doing and follow Jesus. What do you have distracting you in your life that you need to get rid of to better follow Jesus?
