One day, Jesus was approached by a man who wanted to follow him. So far, so good.
Then the man explains that he can’t follow immediately, because his father had just died.
What did Jesus say to a grieving son? “Let the dead bury their own dead!”
And we’re left scratching our heads, wondering how the Good Shepherd could leave such an insensitive remark on the funeral home visitation register.
Maybe we missed something.
