Immediacy of the call

The readings of yesterday and that of today, emphasize the urgency of the Lord's call.
Come follow me!
Let the dead bury the dead.
Let me go and wish my people at home.
On who has put his hand on the yoke and looks back is not worthy of the Kingdom of God. 
On the one hand, they look harsh and too abrupt.  They indeed are! Priorities are clearly set before one.

Looking at it from another perspective, it is perhaps the Lord's way of saying, "You're not going anywhere so distant from your people and home.  You are not to break all ties from them, saying 'goodbye'.  You merely are being called for a specific formation."
