How Far?

Think about Zebedee.  He stood in his boat while his two sons, James and John, left everything they knew, including their father, to follow Jesus.

What would you have thought?  What would you think if your child did something radical like that?

Would you be supportive if your child told you he or she was following the call of God and going to the Philippines to be a missionary?  Going to seminary?  Doing something even more radical to follow God's call?  How would I react?

Could I stand in the boat?  And watch?  How far would I let my children go in their discipleship? Would I risk my children's futures as they follow God?
