For those of us who are innately distrustful of nature, there is something immediately appealing about a tent that is suspended in mid-air. No hard ground to sleep on, no bugs (or snakes!) crawling in—just pure, elevated bliss.
[reference article below]
As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” (Luke 9:57-58)
Lesson: Realize that if you have ever told, will ever tell, or regret having told Jesus you will follow that such walking behind Him means you are never settled in this world. There just is no “elevated bliss” for a disciple of Jesus in this world. Reason? Because we follow a Lord who hung on a cross suspended between heaven and earth until the work of God was accomplished. There is to be sure His joys, His sufferings in your life – just no bliss.
Warning: Don’t try this at home. Let Jesus led the way for your life and you may, or may not, sleep in such a tent. Such comforts, or lack thereof, are up to Him. 1
