From a Creighton Student's Perspective

Sophomore, Biology Major
I first heard of my favorite songs when I was a sophomore in high school, sitting in the lawn with my best friend at my very first concert. Kenny Chesney and Uncle Kracker collaborated on many of their songs, including the song “Follow Me.” This country love song has nothing to do with Jesus, but the Gospel reading from Matthew today made me think of Uncle Kracker crooning the words “follow me and everything is alright…and if you want to leave I can guarantee you won’t find nobody else like me.” Jesus calls Matthew, a sinful tax collector, to come follow him and the righteous Pharisees strongly object. The lyrics to the song match the reading perfectly, because there is no one else like Jesus.
