“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
King James Version (KJV)

I think what Jesus is saying is, like plowing with a mule you must remain looking forward. Keeping the rows straight, not letting the mule get distracted or frightened. Mules sometimes need blinders on the side of thier eyes. We must keep going forward to God, not looking to the side or behind us. Not getting distracted or frightened. We ourselves sometimes need blinders to keep from temptations. It's very easy to get distracted from God. So we must work towards God as if we are using a plow trying to reach the end of a row in a field, keeping our sights on God, not straying from side to side or looking behind us. I myself have watched men plowing with mules, and they paid no attention to what I was doing off to the side or behind them. They focused ahead.

I was raised on a farm and know what a plough is and have used one. Hitch it up to a mule and it will dig up the ground into rows. If you make the rows straight it is easier to plant your seeds. If crooked some seeds will fall by the wayside and the crows will come and eat them up.

I believe it means trying to love the world God. Our fleshy desires must die...there should be no excuse for following Jesus. He doesn 't want some of you, he wants all of you.

It is better not to start christianity journey than to start and not finish it well...u better not to start the work than to started it without not finish it by the way of ur disobeidience to God nd obedience to flesh that we not last u for the work. for the harvest wil soon come to account to the master of the work JESUS Lot wife in d bible thought if she look back to their old properties nd goods,old frnd dat were enjoying that she we look front again but unfortunately is not possible,she became a pillar of salt. thatz the end of her. be careful not to fall into the trap of devil. continue ur vessel to be for honour not for dis honour.

No backslid Christian will enter Heaven? Because, when you hold the plough and your not vigilant it harm you,kill you . Have ever seen someone seriously damaged, with wounds been crowned as a king , Queen , one even a President on this earth ? In the last book old testament it says Go and give a sick animal , a spoil bread to your king or your President, and see if he or she would accept it. Before man and our creator , you , yourself will not correct it , so how much more Him?
