Jesus teaches us, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:62) Our life decisions in response to His call are irrevocable. Elijah’s disciple, Elisha, burned the bridge to his past— his plowshare, the implement of his livelihood— to guarantee that he would not look back (cf. 1 Kings 19:21). Such was his trust in Elijah. Burning a bridge that distracts us from our vocations frees us to look forward and to keep busy with the Lord’s work. Such is our trust in the Lord.
