Luke 9:57-58

Luke 9:57-58 As they were going along the road, someone said to Him, "I will follow You wherever You go." And Jesus said to Him, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."

In this, the first of three tiny vignettes that are traditionally taken to be teaching about the cost of discipleship, Jesus responds to someone who offers faithful allegiance: I will follow you any/every-where.

What is He really saying? You will be homeless? You will never have a night's sleep? Is Jesus talking about homes, permanent places of residence, or about places and circles of work and living, social circles?

Is this really a warning that those who follow Jesus will find themselves 'being' anywhere, and not having fixed settled lives. How does that make you feel?
