Matthew 16:24

I'm beginning to get a glimpse of what having two funeral homes is like. Busy, busy busy. But that's a good thing.

My devotion today was from Matthew 16:24, Then Jesus said unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Discipleship is supposed to cost something. It isn't supposed to be easy. I am such a creature of self-indulgence, not self denial. How many mornings am I loathe to even deny myself another thirty minutes of sleep to have time with the Lord before the kids get up? I pray this verse will be the first thing I think of tomorrow morning when my alarm goes off.
