These are some very harsh words for someone to take during a grieving period in their life. It seems like Jesus cared less about the poor man dilemma on making funeral arrangements. It appears that Jesus showed no sympathy at all about the loss of his loved one. But after careful review of this particular scripture, it wasn't that Jesus did not care, Jesus just did not have time to wait for the man to go bury his family member. I am sure the man was offended by Jesus insensitivity, but I am positive the man realize Jesus had no time to waste! He did not have time to wait on anyone due to the great mission He came to carry out.
To those who reads my posts, I do not try to say or post things to offend anyone. I try to post truth based things like the crisis in Iraq which many did not like the graphic nature of the pictures. I can not post what everyone likes or wants to hear. I try to post what God likes which is the truth!
God bless you!
Matthew 8:21-22 KJV
And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
