“Nobody,” replied Jesus, “who begins to plough and then looks over his shoulder is fit for God’s kingdom.”
Those who half follow Jesus and half follow the world are of no use in the Kingdom of God.
They are not fit.
Those who halfway train for a marathon are not fit enough to run a marathon.
If you are not single-mindedly focused on following Jesus, then you are double-mindedly focused, and a double-minded person is unstable in every way of life.
In my experience as well as many I’ve talked to, being double-minded really sucks.
