“But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.”
King James Version (KJV)

In this verse Jesus is responding to a man who is waiting for his father to die and then he would have sufficient funds to follow from the money gained through the inheritance. Jesus is saying when I call you follow me and I will provide. A verse that comes to mind is Psalms 37:25 Many people intend on serving Christ, when I get out of High School, or College, or when the kids grow up then it 's when I retire. No excuses.

First dead are those people who do not remenber God.Those people who never do any work for the sake of God.Who never try to find God in themselves.For God these people are also dead or of no value.Spiritually these people are dead for God.Second dead are physically dead people in the world.Christ told his followers that these types of work burrying etc. are for worldly intended people because they have no inetrest in God.You are now awakend towards God and now do that works which help you in spiritual progress.

I understand priorities in being a disciple of Christ. I 'm having difficulty understanding why those left behind to tend to the dead are considered "dead. " That 's like saying all that attend to burials and ceremonies are dead in Christ.

It's not what do I think, it's what does it say.
The Scripture clearly tell us we need ot get our priorities straight. Much like WWJD what would Jesus do, it's should be WDJD what did Jesus DO. We need to read and pray and do the things the bible commands us to do.
