In the days of Jesus, only the best of the best Jewish boys would become disciples of the rabbis. All others became apprentices and learned the family's trade. When Jesus called Peter, Andrew, James, and John to follow him, they were learning the family trade. They hadn't been the best of the best. But Jesus called. He called and they followed. There is a saying that goes, "May you be covered with the dust of your rabbi." Essentially this means that you are following him so closely that you end up with the dust he kicked up all day on the front of your body. But what it really means is that by following your rabbi so closely, you are becoming more like him each and every day. So my goal is to follow so closely behind The Rabbi, Jesus Christ, that by the end of each day I am covered in the dust he kicked up.
