    Consider this familiar passage concerning what is required to be a disciple...

    Luke 9:
    57As they were going along the road,someone said to Him, "I will follow You wherever You go."
    58And 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."
    59And He said to another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father."
    60But He said to him, "Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God."
    61Another also said, "I will follow You, Lord; butfirst permit me to say good-bye to those at home."
    62But Jesus said to him, "No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."

    Of the 3 responses of Jesus to the thoughts expressed by those who wanted to be disciples, in each case answer the 2 best descriptions of what you think are the applications of what He meant.
