THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Today’s Gospel is troubling. Does Jesus really expect us to hate our
families, friends and even ourselves in order to be his followers? Jesus
is making a point here about how we attach ourselves to things and to
people, even to images of ourselves. Attachment can cause all sorts of
suffering in our lives. If we are to grow, we move on from the
comfortable, we let go of the familiar, and that can often be painful.
Today, we can ask ourselves: ’What is it that I need to let go of?’
The two parables in this story remind us to think things through and
weigh up the cost involved. This Kingdom of God journey involves
sacrifice and some-times it feel like ‘20,000 against 10,000’. A
disciple of Jesus must be ready to carry the burden not only of tensions
with one’s family but even the burden of legal consequences. This was
the experience of Luke’s community and it is still the experience of
many Christians in the world today. So this passage is a call to
conversion and we read it from the vari-ous forms of discipleship that
we are in: parenting, advocacy, political life, social work,
friendships, com-munity building…
Jesus ‘turned to them’, he is speaking from experience. Jesus‘ words
are harsh, but spend time with this text today; his words can be
interpreted as passionate, urgent, and focused, and can even offer us a
great freedom and encouragement in whatever journey of discipleship we
